Just wanted to introduce myself as a new member, but I've been lurking on the forums for about 18 months.
This forum has been a huge resource for me over the past 18 months; especially, when it comes to getting my head around the more technical aspects of the disease. It is really impressive how far the medical community has progressed with the treatment of this disease; most of my immediate family did not even believe me whenever I would tell them about the treatment that could achieve remission within 3-6 months much less the breakthrough in the 50% response rate in the Treatment Free Remission Trials (TFR).
Right now, my past 3 BCR-ABL QPCR tests have been Undetectable and my current doctor has me on track for a Treatment Free Remission Trial (TFR).
This forum has been a huge asset for me and the peace of mind for my immediate family.
Just wanted to thank you all !
