WCLLD 2022 Video Testimonial of Michael from Ireland – Understanding Issues of Dealing with CLL / the caregiver perspective
On World CLL Day 2022 the CLL community released a full set of inspiring videos that share patients’, carers’ and clinicians’ experience of the challenges a CLL diagnosis can bring and what it is like to live and navigate in this latest phase of the pandemic. We will be featuring these videos on clladvocates.net (see news section) by publishing one video every week until the end of December.
CLL patient caregiver Michael from Ireland shares how his life has been affected since his partner’s diagnosis of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and how the COVID-19 pandemic and the lifting of public health measures has affected him and his family. He explains how hard is for the CLL and other immunocompromised patients to get on board and navigate this new landscape.
Watch Michael’s video here:
We would like to express our gratitude to all participants for sharing their voice in rising awareness about chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and the impact of COVID-19 on the immunocompromised patients. As COVID-19 restrictions are lifted and life returns to normal for those with healthy immune systems, the CLL patients may remain at risk.
Please help the immunocompromised to get on board with the rest of society. Continue spreading the message of awareness!
