  1. Thanks so much for your work to help bring an end to blood cancer. I too am a survivor: Myelomonocytic Leukemia, Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and T-Cell Large Granular Lymphocytic Leukemia (which I currently have as of 2015).

    The after effects, especially after NHL have kept my weight below normal and my new normal for counts are about 25%-30% below normal. But, I’m quite alive and able to work which I must after having lost all our savings to all of the above.

    I have poorly written a book about my voyage. Much of the them of this work mirrors o a sea voyage. I am a former boat delivery captain and have been designing boats since for more than forty years.

    Keep up your great work; every effort helps. All the best, Rob
