"With the advent of new therapies, our patients are living longer, but after time, patients may stop responding or may develop resistance to the drug, hence the need to get new agents approved,” Jacqueline C Barrientos, MD, an assistant professor at Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine in New York, explained in an interview. "As a physician treating mainly hard-to-treat refractory cases, we need these new agents to salvage our patients after each relapse. CLL is a chronic condition and there is no cure for our patients.""
"I'm volunteering in honor of my mother because I can't give any more.  And it's like if these people did not give blood, I would not be here.  So I feel like I need to give back in some way."
"I know in this day and age everyone is busy but I encourage women to make the time to get mammograms" she said. "Early detection can be a lifesaver."
