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 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.
