Our Group’s First Birthday
We are one year old.
In July 2018 we had our launch party and the Derriford CLL Support Group became official. We have met numerous time since then
And on Wednesday 24th July 2019 we had our First Birthday Party.
We started with sharing where we all were on our CLL journey.
Then Dr Claire Hutchinson – one of the CLL specialist haematologists from Derriford, gave a talk on some of the new treatments for CLL
Including details about Ibrutinib, Venetoclax and Retuximab.
Always good to know that there are new treatments coming along that give us all hope.
The we dived into the food provided by some of our members,
and cut the cake brought along by the ever lovely, smiling Sue: Our specialist Nurse.
Graham shared the story of his skydive for charity:
Then we had a good old chat and caught up with each other .
Details of our next meeting coming soon.
