Dianne Robinson was diagnosed with essential thrombocythemia (ET) over eight years ago through a routine blood test. She began seeing her local hematologist and was on medication for two years before discontinuing use due to side effects. In March of 2014, when a blood test showed high platelets and high potassium, Dianne sought treatment at MD Anderson Cancer Center and met Dr. Verstovsek. She is now enrolled in a clinical trial for a time-release version of a medication she was on in the past. Dianne has not let ET affect her daily lifestyle and is optimistic about being under the care of Dr. Verstovsek.
