BPDCN Update with Caitlin and Kelly Lee

podcast download

Caitlin joins us with her mom Kelly to update her progress since treatement for BPDCN, Blastic Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cell Neoplasm, a rare and aggressive form of leukemia.  Caitlin describes as best she can her experience with chemotherapy, radiation, bone marrow transplant, and the tough decisions a very young girl has had to make with her family.  Caitlin’s grace and sense of hope is inspiring; she is truly a force for hope, compassion, and purpose in the world today.  She is currently selling t-shirts to help give back to the all-to-often-forgotten teenagers at the pediatric clinic where she was–with special cards and age-appropriate items for them.  Caitlin is the 3rd child so diagnosed in the United States and the first known survivor.  We look forward to Caitlin’s next update!
