Another cancer blog with good information

I just had a comment from the author of this great list of cancer blog links, saying he was adding the Cheeky Librarian to his list:
http://beingcancer.net/cancer-blog-links/

from his About page:
"Dennis W. Pyritz, RN, BA, BSN, has been a cancer nurse since 1987 and a cancer and bone marrow transplant survivor since 2004. In December 2001 he was diagnosed with t-cell prolymphocytic leukemia (T-PLL), a rare aggressive form of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Dennis was treated with the then new monoclonal antibody, alemtuzumab (Campath) as this disease has a median survival of 7.5 months. He achieved a 26 month remission but relapsed in February 2004. He was retreated with Campath and went into a second remission. In August 2004 he underwent an allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplant with his brother, Mark, as donor. Dennis has remained in remission since - a near miracle."

Hmmmm... a medical librarian and a cancer nurse. I just bet that we could get up to something if we put our heads together! Thanks for the link, Dennis. I have added you to my blog roll, too.
