Poster Boy for OSU
Here is my 15 minutes of fame as I get to share the spotlight with Dr. John Byrd on the cover of the online and snail mail OSUCCR or James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute quarterly magazine: frontiers.
I found out about hard copies being mailed out to thousands of heme/oncs across the country when my local hematologist, Dr. Sanjay Sharma teased me about the color choice of my sweater. I do think Dr. Byrd and I look pretty collegial. I get that I have been co-opted by the Buckeye Nation and I proudly accept.
It was clearly a honor and a privilege to help promote the good work being done at OSU in general and by Dr. Byrd in particular and to also push participation in clinical trials at the James and elsewhere.
Follow the link to find the actual article on page 14 and you will also find Dr. Byrd in his white coat on page 9 describing some of his lab work. Much good information on CLL research in both articles.
Today, I am being cared for by my own medical group, namely at the St Jude Heritage Medical Group cancer infusion center getting my IVIG.
I am very lucky to have this incredible network of care.
My CBC is already back and remains boringly normal. No anemia, low lymphocytes and high platelets. Life is good. More results including my critical bone marrow findings to follow soon.
But first, let me enjoy the sunshine of brief moments of fame.
