The Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation enjoyed a great Patient Educational Forum with the beautiful city of Seattle as its backdrop. The Forum was a collaborative event with the T-Cell Leukemia Lymphoma Foundation. We were joined by Dr. Andrei Shustov from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Centerand Michi Shinohara from the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Dermaology Department. We were also fortunate to be joined by the Grappone family who shared their experience living with cutaneous lymphoma, both as a patient and as members of his immediate family.
The clinical speakers' presentation are available as downloadable pdfs to the right.
Thank you for this opportunity. I would highly recommend that a patient at any stage would benefit. I almost didn't attend - as a IIA in remission for 3 years I didn't know if it would be useful way to spend my time. It was.
