[ Anglais] CLL Patient Café: Tools for Facing a Mid-Life CLL Diagnosis

Published on

Topics include: Understanding and Patient Stories

What’s it like to be diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) at the peak of your career, newly married or with small children? During this CLL Patient Café, Patient Power founders Esther and Andrew Schorr are joined by a panel of CLL patients including Jeff Folloder, Michele Nadeem-Baker and Jeff Brochstein to share their stories and discuss how people in their 40s and 50s can cope with cancer while balancing the responsibilities of a full, and sometimes stressful, life. The panel walks through their mid-life diagnosis, the impact on their partner and family, and dealing with work-related stress, and provides advice to help others become empowered and remain positive on their journey with CLL.
