I was sorry to hear that Clive James has recently become a member of the CLL Club. It has been reported (widely and repetitively!) by the press that Clive has had the illness for some 15 months now and is currently battling a chest infection/complication related to his Leukaemia.
I have always been a great fan of Clive's and find his dead pan comedy deliveries highly amusing :-).
I hope that Clive is feeling a lot better soon, and that he continues to amuse his fans for many more years to come.
P.S. If you fancy posting a "guest blog" on this Leukaemia Issues site, please drop me a line and I would be very happy to share your thoughts with my readers.
