Being diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (CLL) can be a shock, particularly if you have never heard of it. If you have any questions about CLL, including what causes it, who it affects, how it affects your body, what symptoms to expect and likely treatments – this booklet covers the basics for you.

As a CLL patient advocacy group, we aim to improve survival and quality of life for New Zealanders living with CLL. At the same time, through education, research and knowledge sharing, we seek to empower patients to advocate for and access equitable, world-class treatment. We hope this booklet will help advance that objective.

If we can help you with any other information, please take a look around the website or email us at
For more tailored information, talk to your haematologist or clinical nurse specialist.
