Patient Advocate

Rich Siegel of Bellevue, Wash., was diagnosed in 1999 at age 53, following a routine checkup. He researched his symptoms and blood work and felt strongly that he had chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), which was confirmed by a specialist. Rich struggled with the uncertainty of the future after his diagnosis but learned to "go with the flow" in managing his disease and planning his life. He was in "watch and wait" mode for years, followed by a several rounds of different combination therapies with Rituxan, which put him in remission for five years. Now on obinutuzumab and doing well, Rich enjoys spending time with his wife, three children and three grandchildren. He would tell someone recently diagnosed with CLL to "learn about their disease and find a specialist you trust."
