Celebrating two years online with our 7th CLL Tribune Newsletter

I need to start by saying thank you.

This issue of The CLL Tribune (http://www.cllsociety.org/newsletter/) is our 7th quarterly newsletter.

I am proud to say it marks two years since the CLL Society has had a web presence.

This issue includes our Basic section where I do the math on how much CLL we have in our blood. In Beyond the Basics, Dr. Pagel discusses the rapidly changing role of transplant in CLL. From ASH 2016, in Conference Coverage, Dr. Seymour discusses promising new BTK inhibitors. I hope you enjoy my Did You Know fun CLL facts and please don't skip our Ask & Tell section where you can read the results of last issue's Reader Poll or Ask the Doctor section featuring Dr. Furman.

The Living Well with CLL section has five amazing and inspiring articles all written by patients: CLL Life Lessons by Jennifer Woolf; A Sentence of Life! By Derek Caine; Me and my Leukemia, BFFs Forever by Nancy O'Brien Simpson; n of 1 Chapter 28 by Glenn Sabin with my brief intro; and a book review of n of 1 Book by Rick Conner.

We can learn so much from each other. We are so grateful to all our contributors and for your readership and support that in two short years has made us, beside the helpful patient forums like this one, the go-to site for patient-friendly education, support and research.

And please, if you have a story to tell or a lesson to share, we need you to write for us. Reach out to us at support@CLLSociety.org. We need your help.

If you want to write an article about your CLL journey and help thousands of others, please let us know. I love that the majority of this and every newsletter has been written by fellow patients and caregivers

Stay strong

We are all in this together.

You are the true meaning of a Mensch.

Thanks for all you do and have done



It's us who should be thanking you. I am so very grateful to have the opportunity to learn about CLL and have an understanding of where I'm at and where I could possibly be in the future.

The CLL societies along with their wonderful members have kept me sane in the last two(ish) years.

Thank you all.
