Patty and I have been enjoying Seattle. We’ve been here for 3 weeks prepping for the JCAR14 trial at SCCA/Hutch. Tomorrow is my big day- I get the CAR-T cells.
I’ve been blogging on my experience on the CLL Society website and we are adding interviews and research on CAR-T (see: but that may slow down if I am part of the 90% that end up in hospital. Check out our CAR-T educational comic book while you are there on our site.
Anyway, I wanted to stay in touch and look forward to continuing the conversations when I am on the far side of this with no evidence of CLL left in my blood, marrow, and nodes.
Stay strong. We are all in this together
