Inspirational Stories


chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)

A little over two years ago, I was diagnosed as having chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). I was shocked and devastated by the news and immediately began seeing an oncologist. My team from the cancer center has been uplifting, positive, and supportive from the very beginning! They have been successfully treating my cancer and have taught me not to fear my disease.

When I saw The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Facebook Challenge (one mile a day for 21 days), I was eager to support and participate in the challenge as a way to give back and provide support for their mission to find a cure for blood cancers. All of my family have participated in the challenge, and they and many of my friends have shown support with their donations.

God bless the LLS and their mission!
