Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia Patient Leader

Prairie du Sac, WI


I am passionate about sharing information about chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) with patients, caregivers, politicians, pharmaceutical industries, and medical professionals. I am a patient, parent, wife, friend, and active community member that has lived with CML for over 9 years. Prior to having CML, I was diagnosed with Clinical Depression. Since many patients with CML are also diagnosed with depression, this is another area that I am intrested in sharing my experience and insights.
