  1. I’m in W & W, diagnosed October 1, 2020. Thanks for this presentation, I’m still learning and reading.
    Thanks again.

    1. A doctor who will be your partner is essential (“or I am going to be a terrible patient” as Donnie said). I am in W & W. Received the news of CLL Thanksgiving Mid-Pandemic 2020. No doctor actively overseeing progression. Dropping a lot of weight and very fatigued. I learned so much from this podcast. Thank you!

      1. Sarah, we are sorry to hear about your symptoms. If you need any support, please don’t hesitate to contact an Information Specialist at 1-800-955-4572 or
