Is this the longest surviving CLL patient ?

Found this posted on the Leukaemia and Lymphoma Society website today......................

"In a few months my 90 year old father will mark his 35th year since he was diagnosed. Has been in & out of remission numerous times, transfused more times than I can remember. Three rounds of chemo (IV) since 1997, last one in 2007. Currently receiving Rituxan once every 3 months. Now off Prednisone after years..
Downside is that he may be a diabetic now! Diagnosed with Alzheimer's 3 years ago, also had
several skin cancer surgeries in the last 3 years. Just like the Energizer Bunny, he keeps going!!"

Wow!.This sounds like a very encouraging bit of news for people like myself to hear :-)
