Alive and Well with CLL — 14.5 years now and counting…

Posted by: Denise on: February 19, 2016

I’ve been so busy with my life lately, that I’ve neglected posting here on my CLL web site. The good news is that I’m doing well! My numbers have been improving. I’m stable, and therefore have been able to concentrate on other things in my life: like my work and my grandkids. (Jared, pictured at […]

CLL and the Wheat-Free Diet

Posted by: Denise on: October 28, 2015

This is a guest post by Eric Clark, a fellow CLL manager who has graciously offered to write on his like-minded thoughts for this web site: Wheat-Less Wisdom – #1 As Humans – Homo Sapiens – we have evolved uniquely over the past 2.5 million years distinguished initially by our use of fire to cook meat.

Alkalize for Health with CLL

Posted by: Denise on: August 15, 2015

I’m really big into lists. But sometimes I think it’s best to focus on one good thing at a time. And one good thing you can do for yourself is to alkalize. There is a lot of information out there about what to eat in order to keep your body alkaline and therefore more healthy. […]

Posted by: Denise on: June 11, 2015

Living Well with CLL — June 2015 Update It’s been just about fourteen years since I was first diagnosed with CLL, and I thought it was time I made an update. It’s always my goal to post more frequently. I worry that people who go to this site will get a flash of fear if […]

Another CLL Success Story!

Posted by: Denise on: October 9, 2013

I apologize for not posting more often. Now and again I get emails asking if I’m still here–as in alive. Yes! I’m very much alive and relatively well. By relatively, I mostly mean my parents, both of whom are geriatric (82 and 87) and both of whom are ill (congestive heart failure and stroke) and […]

CLL Update August 29, 2012

Posted by: Denise on: August 29, 2012

There is a reason there are so few posts on this blog.  Initially I was positive that I could totally reverse my CLL diagnosis.  This hasn’t happened — yet.  My plan for this blog was to be an uplifting, upbeat place for people with CLL (newly diagnosed or those trucking along like me) to get […]

CLL Alternative Protocol

Posted by: Denise on: December 16, 2010

Here is the list of what I take and what I do, at this time in my life (it has changed many times) to be well and get well.  My goal is, and had been, since July 2005, to become cancer-free.  Others have done it and so can I.  (By implication, you can too!) There […]

CLL Diet

Posted by: Denise on: November 11, 2010

There is no such thing as a “CLL diet.”  When I was first diagnosed, back in July 2001, I clearly recall the hematologist telling me to eat well, exercise and get a good night’s sleep.  Unfortunately, he wasn’t very specific about the diet or exercise part. In the years since, I’ve become a natural cook. (This […]
