This is relevant to my interests.  Wife's uncle has that.  While you NEVER want to hear the dreaded C word, he was told that it was one of the least bad cancers one could have.

fark you subby. I was diagnosed with HCL 4 years ago. Now you might be trying to be funny, but its name is derived from what it looks like under a microscope, not from what it grows. The chemo I had worked well. No side effects at all. But it will come back some day. Might be 5 years. Might be 20 years. Most patients are old men (tenuous link between Agent Orange and other bad herbicides), so there's not a lot of data on the younger people who had it (I was 32). So, yeah, I hope this is a breakthrough. Sorry for being selfish.
