click for podcast download

CCTR interviews Caitlin Lee (12) and her mom, Kelly about Caitlin’s recent diagnosis with BPDCN and course of treatment. Blastic plasmacytoid dentritic cell neoplasm is a rare, especially among children, acute leukemia subtype with no therapeutic protocol because it is so rare and newly categorized. Stories of hope and unparalleled strength are tempered with the pending realities of a bone marrow transplant…stem cells, and a baby donor’s umbilical cord. Caitlin is a gifted student with scientific aspirations.  We will be following her story with high hopes for a complete recovery.
