There is something I have to tell you…

276

As all of you who read my blog regularly know, my book 'One Hundred Lengths of the Pool' comes out on Monday, but there is an additional chapter, One Hundred and One, that I was not expecting to write, and that is the chapter I need to tell you about today.

Throughout the time I had been writing my book, I had also been working full time at QVC and I must confess that at times I felt overwhelmingly tired. Maybe that's why I decided that it would be sensible to have a comprehensive health check. I had been working hard and I was approaching fifty-five… I looked on it as a kind of MOT for the body.

Everything on the day was fine with the exception of one of the blood tests, which had to be sent away for further analysis, which I was assured was fairly routine. However, two days later, I received a phone call from the doctor, as I was preparing to go 'on air' at QVC, recommending that I see a Consultant Haematologist as soon as possible as I had a very high white blood count, WBC. That was on the Thursday evening and the following Monday I was at University College Hospital in central London. 


The registrar started by asking me if I had been feeling unwell and I said no, just very fatigued. He checked my neck, under my arms and my groin for swollen lymph glands, and my abdomen just under my ribcage, which I later learnt was to see if my spleen was enlarged.

He was then very direct with me. "Are you a person who likes to know everything up front, or would you prefer to wait until we have got all the test results back?" he asked. "I am definitely the former," I replied. That was when he told me that the blood test that day showed an even higher WBC of 42.8 and that it was probable that I had chronic myeloid leukaemia, known as CML.

To confirm his suspicions, he said that I would need to have a bone marrow biopsy, which he would prefer me to have done immediately in order not to delay the diagnosis any longer than necessary, and so begin treatment as soon as possible. I agreed to have the biopsy done straight away and then emailed QVC to say that I would not be available for my shift that evening.

Ten days later the diagnosis was confirmed, I have chronic myeloid leukaemia. It is quite a rare type of blood cancer with only around six hundred cases a year in the UK and currently it is not curable without a bone marrow transplant, but it can be controlled with targeted chemotherapy drugs. For the first three months the only people who knew were my family, who have been magnificent in their love and support for me, and my immediate boss at QVC, Mike, without whose kindness and consideration regarding shift patterns I could not have continued to work.

I wanted to be able to work, even though I was incredibly tired and suffering some unpleasant side effects from the drugs, to keep a modicum of normality in my life as the shock of the diagnosis and the fact that I would now be on long term medication, potentially for the rest of my life, really sank in. It is so alien for me to take any kind of tablets, even headache pills, and yet without the drugs I now have to take I would not survive, so it has had to become an accepted part of my life.

As you can imagine it is very difficult for me to share this bad news with you all as I didn't want to upset you and I don't want you to worry. I needed to be sure that the chemotherapy drugs that I have been on since my diagnosis were doing their job to bring the CML under control.

I had a set back in October when the results of one of my regular blood tests revealed that I wasn't progressing as well as hoped. I had an anxious couple of weeks waiting for test results to determine whether I had become resistant to the medication or whether the dosage needed to be increased. Fortunately it was the latter and the drugs are currently working well. The latest visit with my Professor was encouraging.

I promise I will keep you up to date with my progress from now on and I hope you will understand my reasons for not telling you sooner and why I am telling you now. I didn't want you to just read about it in chapter 101… it didn't seem right.

Talking of the book, I can now reveal that the latest winner of my competition is Alana Hughes from Preston – congrats! And there's still the chance to win a personalised signed copy in our final competition. As its first airing will be in the Morning Show on Monday. as part of our 'Mothers and Daughters' event, I thought this would be an appropriate question: What is my daughter's name?

To enter, email your answer with your full name and address to competitions_uk@qvc.com before midnight on Sunday (3rd March). We won't be able to publish any answers that get posted here or they will give the answer away! I will reveal the winner my blog next week.

    I’m so sorry to hear your news, but it sounds like things are under control now and I pray that this will continue for you. Your naturally bubbly personality is a real asset for you now and I’m sure that you will also gain strength from the masses of support you will get from family, friends and viewers. Take care and God Bless.

    Hi Julia,
    I have just read your news, I do feel for you and hope everything goes well for you. It is nice that you have the support of your family and I am sure from your work colleagues.
    It must have been an awful blow when you got the results as it is something everyone dreads. Lets hope it can be kept under control with the drugs and you do not get to many side affects.
    I am looking forward to reading your book, I see it has been sent off by QVC.
    Anyway you take care and I will be thinking of you.
    Love Jean XXX

    Hi Julia
    I saw you on the Clogau show and thought you did not seem your usual self and put it down to your flu. This also explains why you have not been on screen so much.
    What a great family you have and partner in Chris to support you through this ordeal which must have been horrendous. Although I have never met you personally I send you big hugs and and warm wishes. And know that your blogettes support you all the way.
    The positive is that now it is being controlled it will make you even stronger in spirit.
    The good news is that your book is on its way to me yippee! I think a box of tissues and a glass of wine are needed when I start reading. And this has made me even more determined to do this myself.
    Realised too late that you were on with Marjolein as I would have sent you a question wonder what she would have thought of our class nickname of Pirates?
    Anyway enough rambling and enjoy your launch on Monday you deserve it!
    Love
    Joy xx

    Julia – all I can say is how amazingly strong you have been to face up to your diagnosis and keep on working. May the chemo drugs work as well as possible for as long as possible and have minimal side effects. I post on Ali Keenan’s blog as I have secondary breast cancer and have just had to change drugs. People say how strong and brave I am but the truth is that I face it and have the drugs because the alternative is not an option.
    I am sure you are being well looked after at UCLH. Sending loads of positive vibes to you and your family and friends.

    Dear Julia, I have always thought that there is no rhyme or reason in life and your news is proof of that. Your grace and courage are evident from your words even though you must feel shattered by what has happened. Just over two years ago I sat at this desk with tears pouring down my face after reading a very similar post from Ali and as many tears are falling now. Having been with QVC from ‘Day One’ I feel that I know some of the presenters and you’ve been a regular in my life for all that time, as I told you recently you sold me my first item and many, many more since! I replied to all Alison’s blogs during her illness because if she could write to us we so wanted to write back to her and I continue to do that – I was also the one who came up with the name “Ali’s Army” and we’re all there for you. Sending you lots of love and positive thoughts. Jx X

It is at times like this that you truly appreciate the support of family and friends, which I know you are blessed to have both. If you don’t mind it would be nice to keep updated on your progress as I do feel from watching you on QVC for many years and reading/posting on your blog that myself and I’m sure other QVC viewers have got to known you more.
    Speaking of your book I am over the moon to have won your latest copy and I can’t wait to receive it in the post!!! I’m sure it will be such a wonderful read.
    Looking forward to Elemis this weekend.

    I have read your news in disbelief, and I am very sad for you and your family. I Have been with QVC from ‘Day One’ I feel that I know you personally and feel very close to you as you have always shared your thoughts, family and experiences with all your viewers. You been a regular in my life for all that time.
    Please get well soon and I hope you respond to treatment well.
    I understand what you are going through as my brother has Acute Lymphoblastic Leaukaemia which is slightly different from yours as he is 21 and has got the “childrens” type of leukaemia in adulthood which has meant he has it worse than when children get it.
    Please keep in touch Jules.

    Oh Julia, I am sat here at the computer, very emotional and very shocked at what I have just read…you know I would have been one of the first to write on your blog, it’s the first thing I do once Chris has gone to work, that is read your blog. I wasn’t able to do so today, because Chris was working from home.
    Thank you for sharing this with us, you are so brave and have your lovely Chris, Sophie and Daniel, not forgetting Poppy, to look after you and many great friends at QVC too.
    I have just told Chris and he is shocked by this also and sends his love and positive thoughts, as do I!
    Sorry, Julia, I have to go, Chris has just started playing that piece of guitar music he was teaching himself to play ‘Creek House’ from The Horse Whisperer…it is beautiful piece of music and started me off crying.
    Take care and I will write again soon

    I hope with all my heart you are soon well,I feel sure everything will be ok ,and know your lovely family will help you on the road to a full recovery.
    Love and hugs always lovely lady -and thank you for being there when I needed help and for making me smile.

    My DEAR Julia,
    I am so so sorry about the diagnosis. I believe in PRAYER and I am going to pray for you. I had a SHOCK when I read your news today. I wish you health and I pray you are in good hands and that they are doing everything to help you. You are such a jolly person and I love watching you on QVC. My heart goes out to you dearest Julia. I have never written to you but I feel that now I must. My heart is heavy and I pray that the cure will start with you, Why not? Do you believe in the Lord, Julia? Please place your trust in Him and ask Him for your health…I am. I want to see a lovely lady like you well and maybe news that some day you will marry your sweetheart, Chris. At the moment I hope you can think positive and beat this. I wish you the very best dear Julia. I am thinking of you and shall keep praying.
    Sincere and Kind Regards,
    Mrs Naseem Richards.

    I too have a raised haemoglobin and had several blood tests and blood volume study and I am waiting for the results from my Haematologist to know if I will need a bone marrow biopsy.
    It sounds like you have a very loving family to support and be there for you.
    Thank you for sharing it with us.
    I shall look forward to read your blogs to hear how you are.
    I will be thinking of you.

    Hi Julia
    Wow what a shock to read about your illness!
    You are a brilliant presenter and I feel a genuinely lovely person and because I see you on Tv a lot I feel as if I know you as a friend, and so from one friend to another I send you a huge hug and all best wishes for a complete recovery.
    It’s amazing how you carry on regardless of how you are feeling doing your job so brilliantly, always explaining thoroughly whatever it is you are showing on air. I love watching you on Butler and Wilson hours and also fashion and beauty and of course fabulous pilates. It’s never forced or over sold with you and so your hours are always watchable and informative and enjoyable.
    So from a friend out here in the ether I send you love, luck and good health and if ever your alone and need a hand to hold, just close your eyes and imagine us all queuing up to take it in turns.
    Much love from Nottingham.

I know from my own experience that you are probably more worried about them than yourself at the moment but chin up! Lets hope your team make it to the Premier League this year – that will give you something to look forward to! (Still talking about football even now!) I received your book today and haven’t put it down since lunchtime! Love and best wishes, i know you will be fine

    I have read your blog on numerous occasions and asked myself ‘how does she do it ‘ you seem to never stop for breath whether it be for work responding afterwards to Qvc customers.Tending to your family, cooking cleaneing exercising, you make me tired just reading all that you fit in! And then there’s the football.
    My other half is also a Gemini with similar traits as you looking after everyone else and giving everything 100%.
    maybe it’s time for you to slow down just for a wee while and have a well deserved rest, I know your health will improve because you have already proved you are a fighter.Wishing you all the very best!!!!
    Spain looks very inviting this time of year and there’s probably a beach with your name on it.

My prayers and good wishes go to you and your family. I have liked you since day one on QVC, you have often enthused me, especially via Pilates, and losing the weight that is so difficult for both of us. Hold on Julia, God has chosen you to be a role model to lots out there in televison land, we look to you, and now will be here to uphold you whatever you are loved by lots, and we will be here to keep you positive should you feel a little “one degree under” at times!

    Dear Julia, I have just read your latest blog and admit that I do not normally write but am so shocked to read your awful news. I know what impact the C word can have, having been diagnosed with breast cancer and now recovering from a mastectomy. I also know a lady who has CML and has had it for many years but with her medication she is absolutely fine as I am sure you will be. I am waiting for my copy of your book to arrive but for some reason I am glad that I have read it on here first because I get very emotional when reading books so thanks for sharing with us now. I am sure that you will be fine with the medication, the love of your fabulous family and plenty of rest. Hope that I don’t sound over confident but that is how I have dealt with the situation I have been in and I know that you are a very positive lady. I once spoke to you in the studio when you had John Miller on but that was quite a long time ago. My thoughts and prayers are with you and if I don’t stop writing now this will turn out to be far too long for you to read and you will be bored stiff. Take care of yourself Julia you can do this. Lots of Love Janet xxx

    Dear Julia,
    I was just watching QVC and noticed Ali Keenan was wearing a compression bandage on her arm….obviously due to side effects from her breast cancer treatment ,so I checked her blog to see how she was doing.
    Then I thought I would see what you had been up to and I was so shocked and sad to hear of your illness.
    Like many others I have been watching you from almost the beginning on QVC and we do feel like we know you personally. You must have been on camera for longer than any other person in the history of British TV and your lovely bubbly genuine personality shines through.
    You often talk of your family and I am sure they will cherish and look after you but I hope you take a little comfort from the fact that there are thousands of people,who you have never met, who feel a genuine affection for you and are wishing you so much love and good luck for the future.
    As I understand it there is effective treatment for your cancer so I really do hope all goes well for you and you are able to enjoy life, and hopefully we can enjoy you on QVC, for many many years to come.
    Lots of love Andrew

    Dear Julia,
    I am very sorry and shocked to hear the devastating news of your illness. I ordered your book then went to your blog. It reminded me of waiting for and receiving my husbands test results. He was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia over four years ago. Fortunately a very good match was found quickly and he had a stem cell transplant which saved his life. He will be on medication for the rest of his life but he has a future to look forward to. I love watching you on QVC and thought you have been looking very tired for a while but assumed that you had been overdoing things knowing how busy you always are. I hope a match is found for you soon and that in the mean time you continue to do well with the treatment. I think you must be very strong and brave to have continued to work like you have also keeping it to yourself must have been difficult but I think I understand. Please take things easy, take care and be positive. Thinking of you.

    Hi Sarah
    Thanks for your kind words but in fact being able to come in to QVC and carry on as ‘normal’ has helped me immeasurably, even when I wasn’t feeling so good. I had a deal with my boss Mike – if I felt 60% I would come in to work, less than that and I would stay away ….. I only took 4 days off (until this recent flu bug).

    Dear Liz
    I am so sorry to hear of your secondary breast cancer – I hope the new drug will work for you. As you say once you have faced and accepted the diagnosis you listen to the experts and do as they tell you – I hate taking the drugs, as I’m sure you do, but the alternative is not an option.
    Sending you lots of love

    Hello Karen
    You really lifted me with your comment that you had seen me on shows since my diagnosis and would never have guessed – I am trying to carry on as normal …… Some days it’s easier than others.
    Love

    Hi Julia.
    I too was diagnosed with CML five years ago at the age of fifty. It was quite a shock for myself and my family. But I was put on a wonderful drug called Glivec and my blood counts are managing to stay stable.
    Good luck with your treatment and I’m sure you will be fine.
    Wishing you all the very best,

    Thank goodnes you decided to check on your symptoms. A lesson for us all.
    I felt for you when you mentioned the bone marrow biopsy as my husband had some of those when he was treated for non Hodgkinson’s Lymphoma and I know they are not much fun!. Treatment these days is fantastic, he is counted as a cure now and I know you will be fine – especially now they have the medication worked out.
    I hope you will be back on air regularly again soon as I love your shows – especially as you always give measurements so quickly. You must hear me!
    All the best

    It was such a shock to read this & I admire you greatly for your courage. I am so very sorry to see what has happened & sending you my thoughts & prayers that you will beat this. Whilst my situation is very different to yours I too had a major setback 10 weeks ago as I suffered a small stroke & I am now on medicaiton for the rest of my life. I too rarely took any kind of medication so understand your feelings but like me its now a needs must. There comes a time when we have to go with what is best.
    All the very best my love & do not give up.I am sure that the love & support you have received from your family & friends has been the same for you as it has for me. Without them I could never have got through.
    Much love & HUGE hugs

    Hi Julia i’m late in reading your blog & was reminded when tweeting you to say how fabulous you were looking today with keeley & leighton (under carramaniac- thanks to nephew) & as i tweeted you about pilates machine in response to your tweet about using yours i read other worrying tweets to you & quickly logged in.
    I’m very upset about your news, i have been a viewer for more years than i can remember so have been able to enjoy your shows (since yr dot i guess-:-D:-D) & haven’t worked for just over 3yrs due to poor health & mobility so have had lots of daily viewing too (cant have too much)& your a joy to watch. Cant believe you too have now been touched by that evil destructive life villain (C) won’t give it the strength of its full name. Hope medswork to full capacity & keeps you feeling healthy & your nirmal bubbly funny fabulous self & keep up the pilates for feel good healthy helper.
    Sorry if this message a bit jumbled, i’vd bubbled a bit while trying to type this on phone -upset & mad you got caught by this too, i get annoyed at this indiscriminate nasty, my dad had bowel cancer 16 yrs ago ( large bowel gone) full recovery & mum got breast cancer around time Ali Keenan but hey, they’re doing well too! Stay strong, positive & fabulous!

    Hi Julia
    I’m really sorry to hear that news. Not what you deserve at all, but then life just doesn’t work like that does it! Truly remarkable how you’ve kept going on QVC with all that going on and shows a tremendous strength of character. That will, no doubt, keep you on the road to recovery. Positivity is so important when life throws you an ordeal don’t you think. I hope and pray the medication continues to keep things under control.
    Last entry to the competition today then. If no luck this time, I will be buying your book. I always intended to and look forward to reading it.
    I’ve been up to loads of Elemischief today! Looking back, I’m certain it was you who first inspired me to try it about seven years ago. I remember you saying your age on air, I think you were 48 at the time. I remember being totally gobsmacked ……. and the rest is history as they say! I have never looked back with Elemis and my skin looks better now than it did all those years ago. So, they must be doing something right eh?!
    Love and continued luck with your prognosis.

    Take each day as it comes, as each day passes, you’ll get stronger.
    Yes, you were right to keep working, you’re obviously a fighter, one very gutsy lady and an inspiration to others.

Your overall fitness and wonderful attitude will go a long way to help with you managing this condition. It can be done!!

I must say, seeing you being so positive has really helped me. I have been having some blood tests being done and re done and they have found too many white blood cells and too many antibodies.

Truthfully you have looked very tired for quite a while now, and I have often wondered if you are a bit worn down. Life sure does throw some horrible things at us, and when we least expect it. I know! You are so fortunate to have such a supportive loving family, but it is still hard. I am praying for you Julia.

    Dear Julia, I am so sorry to hear this news. You must be reeling from the shock of it all. How brave of you to keep working and smiling (a lesson for us all). Like a lot of viewers I have been a follower of QVC for over 15 years. I have always been struck by your professionalism, and natural ability to sell just about anything, (I know because I have bought most of it !!? lol). More importantly I think it is your natural warmth, friendliness and bubbly personality which has always shone through , and will hold you in good stead to cope with your illness. I am sure your work colleagues will rally around, especially the lovely Ali and Amecka who are also fighting this cruel illness. Know too that a lot of viewers , myself included, hold you in such high regard and will be praying and thinking only positive thoughts for you. Take care , lots of love and hugs Helen xxx

    Hi Julia. Welcome to the CML club. Not one anyone would choose to be in. I was diagnosed in August last year and like you was very fatigued so the diagnosis was a shock. The great thing is there is lots of support on Facebook cml UK page though sadly we do seem to be growing group. When I was first diagnosed someone told me it was the best cancer to get because although rare, it is treatable. I can’t say I found the comment easy to stomach, but I am grateful for the advice and support from my gp, and consultant as well as Macmillan. Seven months on and I am doing great, so keep on going, laugh often, love with abandon and appreciate your family and friends, they all walk with you :)

    Morning Julia,
    I am totally shocked, I am so sorry and hope that you will soon be feeling better and that they medical staff can get a grip of this for you. I having been watching QVC almost since the beginning and through my disability and car accident you were my life. Watching you gave me a connection to every day which I didn’t have lying in bed for six years as reality was just something which happened to other people. Life is so precious and for me I always take a day at a time and think of all the good things in my life, all the things I can still do and not the things that I can’t. I saw 15 consultants all who said I wouldn’t get my mobility back and it was essentially perm and I proved them wrong, it took me twelve years but the positivity and the belief I had in myself was immense. Ok I am not perfect I have my severe limitations and life can be so hard just at a time when it should be easier and when it all falls apart there is never a rhyme or reason which really justifies it.
    I watched you a few days ago presenting and you look amazing you are such a naturally beautiful women which starts on the outside and continues right to the middle like a stick of seaside rock!!! which should read 100% Julia. Take a look on my website and if I can help in anyway please contact me.

I am also taking drugs, to shrink the cancer. They are working great at the moment, thank God! You are an inspiration to me, and I just thought that hearing of other people with similar things makes you feel that you are not alone. God bless you Julia and I know that we are both going to be fine, love Gillxx.

    When you have someone in the family who is ill as i have they become the most important person in your life and you will do all in your power to help them fight their battle!! And the love and support you have from yours will get you through.So happy that you and Chris are off for a well earned break to the beautiful sunshine.Enjoy every minute and have plenty of rest.

    I’ve just read your news about your illness and I’m truly shocked. Watching you on some of your recent shows over previous months, I had thought to myself that you didn’t look your usual self and wondered if you were suffering the effects of the menopause. ( I am in the early stages of getting to grips with it’s delightful symptoms ) If only that were the case for you Julia. It never fails to shock me when I hear examples of life’s cruel twists and turns. I’m amazed at your acceptance and stoicism, but know that your positive personality and the huge support you will receive will be of benefit to you in the challenges you will have to face.

    Hello Julia so sorry to hear about your illness. My father has the same thing (has had it for 20 years) he is 85. He leads a normal life and plays golf 4 times a week!! The Onconoligst can’t believe how well he is doing and my mother swears by the healthy diet she gives him. All fresh and homemade food.
    We met a few years ago at one of Simon Wilson’s fashion evenings I was with my daughter and we were all over the road having a drink together.
    Last year I found out I had breast cancer and am on the road to recovery so I know just how devastating the news was for you and I wish you and your family well

Had my spleen removed and some chemo and am now on annual checks. I now lead a very normal life and forget completely about my problem which does not impact on my life at all. Good luck Julia – a positive frame of mind does wonders!!!!!!

    Hi Julia I have just read your news I myself was diagnosed a year ago with AML tthree weeks before my eldest sons wedding April 13th 2012 I held off the immediate chemo so that I would not miss their big day sheer determination and lots of blood transfusions got me to the wedding and started my chemo the following day .I know your luekiemia is different type but you will be strong and get through it .I have had four sessions of strong chemo because I was 90 percent acute myeloid and then had to have a bone marrow transplant on 31st October believe it my sons birthday . I was extremely lucky not to have had to wait long for a doner match .I was given first remission on Tuesday and getting there I say I didn’t invite this cancer into my body it’s not staying and defiantly not coming back fight and you will win .You always come over on screen as a strong determined lady be positive the glass is always half full . I and my family attended a charity function at Swanseas liberty stadium last week in which Angel Rangel and his wife raised £17,750, for Maggies cancer centres which you can just drop into for a cuppa and chat or you can get information on line .taking medication will make us feel horrid but we are given a second bite of the cherry and the cherries are sweet .

    Dear Julia
    I am so sorry to hear of your illness. My mum was diagnosed with myelproliferative and mylodysplagia on 28th December last year and we were devastated. She needs blood transfusions every 4-5 weeks to keep her energy levels up and is taking Hydroxyurea 3 days a week. My father was then diagnosed with prostate cancer a month ago as well so it has been a hellish 3 months.
    But your right what doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger , and we get up and keep going because we have to.. As a George Michael lyric says… hang on to hope, when there is no hope to speak of, … praying for Time..
    I have been a nurse for 18years, I’m now 42 and seeing my parents go through cancer is very hard. However we make the most of life now and don’t take things for granted maybe like we used to. Keep strong, surround
    Yourself with good friends and family and laugh often. You are a lovely woman and I wish you and your family all the very, very best. Take good care. X x

    Julia … my apologies. I assumed (wrongly) on a post elsewhere that you had breast cancer. That’s because I’m no longer a regular viewer of QVC. I’m so sorry to hear your news; we never know what’s about to hit us do we? I’m sure with the love of your family, your positive outlook and the drugs you’ll beat this. All the very best xx Linda

    Hi Julia
    I remember watching you and Jon introduce the first show on the new QVC channel,I remember your hair being very curly.
    You have always been my favourite presenter on QVC although Ihave to admit not watching the Channel as much as I used to.
    It was only by chance that I just tuned in to watch you and Kim from Kim and Co.
    A lady rang in and mentioned your book, I didn’t know you had written a book.
    Anyway I went to check out your blog and was very shocked to read about your diagnosis.
    I just want to say That although I know this must have knocked you for six to say the least, you are strong willed and the doctors have you on the right medication it seems.
    I hope that the meds continue to work and my love goes out to you and your family
    God bless you,try and stay strong

    Ahh bless you Julia. I have watched you on qvc for years and years now. So sad to hear your poorly. You always seem so bubbly when your presenting. I truly hope you can and will be okay. Good luck with your treatment. Xx Elena

    Hi Julia, I didn’t realise that you had been unwell until watching your Elemis show this morning when a vague comment was made about your health. I then read your blog. Just to say I wish you the very best for the future.
    PS: I always like watching the shows you present as you are so professional with a warm approach.

    Hi Julia , I was reading your blog s and came across the blog where you were diagnossed with CML , I myself was diagnosed with CLL I April this year . I am on watch an wait at the moment . This can be quite upsetting as you always think early diagnosis is good it’s the opposite with CLL . I hadn’t shown any signs or symptoms , but I had food poisoning and couldn’t shake it off . I ended up in hospital where they told me my WBC was quite high . Looking at you , you are giving me hope . I was ok when they told me of my diagnosis and a couples of weeks later it hit me , it’s a very emotional time . I am doing ok just had a. Three month check and its stable (fingers crossed) . I do enjoy watching QVC especially the Charlie Bear and Liza Earle shows x
