Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) and you

Welcome to the CLL area of the JanssenWithMe platform, a section dedicated to supporting people living with the disease.

Receiving a diagnosis of CLL can come with a raft of different emotions, but by building up your knowledge about the disease, you can prepare yourself for what is to come. It’s the first step towards effectively managing your CLL.

Each person will experience the disease differently. Some will require urgent care, while others will experience requiring treatment much later, if at all, due to its slow development. Understanding CLL and the various treatment options that are available can help you make much more informed decisions during consultations, enabling you to help tailor your treatment to your personal needs, and overall, better prepare you to manage a life with CLL. Remember, your doctor should be the first person you talk to about more specific and in-depth queries.
