Leukemia board

Hello and I wish you the best. I called one of my closest friends tonight (we've been friends since college, 20+ years) and she told me she has been diagnosed with CML. She tells me she's doing OK, just started Gleevec 3 days ago. She's just 43 and single with a lot of family support. I guess I'm not sure what to do. She lives about an hour away, but we talk nearly weekly. (hadn't talked to her while she was going thru testing as we were on vacation). Thanks for listening.
