Over nine years of blogging since transplant for CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia) on July 1, 2008

Over nine years of blogging since transplant for CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia) on July 1, 2008


What a long strange trip it’s been.

I just posted one of my old school blog post about my CLL journey:

Some of you have been along for most of my almost 12 year CLL/ITP/ HSCT/ clinical trial journey and the last 9+ years of blogging about it, and the last 2 + years of the nonprofit, CLL Society:

I get a little moist remembering all the changes. Lately I have been so busy with the CLL Society and my work as a family doc, the blog has been the poor stepchild

But I miss writing from the heart and not just covering the latest news.

Let’s see if I can find the time to write more.

Stay strong.

We are all in this together.

Thank you for all the writing and sharing you do on the subject, Brian, and sharing your own personal journey. It is very inspiring and helpful.

Thanks for your intensely personal and interesting writing. I have found it encouraging and informative on my, so far, two and a half years Hill walking through the peaks and troughs of CLL. I tried a bit of blogging myself (miserable attempts).

Beautiful painting.

We've recently just binge watched the Netflix documentary on the"DEAD" - excellent - and it sure is a long strange trip!

Best wishes, Roger


Nothing quite matches a personal blog Brian and it can be so cathartic too.




We love you Doc. I don't know how I would have handled the early days (especially) without you.



Well said, Jeff. I feel the same. Dr. Koffman's blog was a hopeful beacon in the early days after my diagnosis.

Thank you for all you do.

Is that a self-portrait? Om....


My son painted it.


Dr Brian, you have been an inspiration! It helps to know how you are grappling fir all of us. May you go from strength to strength!


Yes, keep writing! I've only been on this journey for 2 years and W&W so I'm really interested in knowing more about this CLL. I love your painting of you too!
