This has been one of the most asked questions.....is this cancer? Since my own diagnosis I have been told multiple things from different respected professionals. I believe they are finally turning the corner and universally agreeing to say, yes, this is a chronic blood cancer. I was just on the Leukemia and Lymphoma site where you will find our diseases listed under "General Cancer" . It is a positive in that we can get support from this Cancer organization as well as other organizations dedicated to supporting and educating those with a cancer diagnosis.
