Marie - Interview 18
More about me...
On her return from living in Africa in 1989 Marie developed pains which her GP attributed to the change in climate and possible rheumatism. A year later a pain in her groin prompted the GP to do a blood test. Marie was referred to a consultant who told her it was chronic lymphocytic leukaemia. She was shocked and assumed it meant she would die but was told that her disease had been caught early so would be monitored with regular blood tests and she should get on with her life.
Marie was also interviewed for the clinical trials section of this site (see Interview CLT25).
