Phoenix Marriott Tempe at the Buttes
An audience of CLL patients and their caregivers joined us at a recent town meeting at Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center to hear about emerging therapies in CLL, current treatment options and support resources.
We are also planning events in other cities. If you haven’t already, please sign up for email updates, so we can alert you when important and inspiring videos become available and when upcoming town meetings are scheduled.
Can a JAK inhibitor such as ruxolitinib help with CLL fatigue? Dr. Nitin Jain and Dr. Alessandra Ferrajoli discuss the effectiveness of ruxolitinib (Jakafi), as well as aerobic exercise in fighting fatigue in CLL patients.
Anxiety and depression are very much a reality for patients with CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia). Are patients aware of the resources that are out there to support the mind as well as the body? Dr. Rena Szabo explores how CLL can impact mental health.
What happens during the watch and wait period? Dr. Rena Szabo, licensed psychologist, discusses how a team of medical professionals work in support of their patients to give them the best care.
