Eliot Finkelstein was diagnosed in May of 2013 at 55 years of age with CLL and was told he would be in the watch and wait (worry) program. Two and-a-half years later, some of his blood result numbers doubled over a 6-month period, and his LDH was rapidly increasing inappropriately. Eliot began FCR in Feb 2016. His last treatment will take place the week of June 27-29, 2016. Eliot’s disease manifested mostly in his enlarged lymph nodes. Eliot has an engaging Facebook presence at facebook.com/eliot.finkelstein. He also maintains a website at [email protected]. Eliot’s background is varied: retired military reserves (no financial help until he turns 60), realtor photographer, graphic artist and web designer, to name a few.
