Journal entry by Savid Justus

THE REASON for this web page is because people like to know what is going on with my health and it seems to be the dominating topic of most of our conversations. Not that I am in denial about my circumstances, but I am choosing a different response to this life event by not focusing on the CLL, meaning, choosing not to talk about it outside of this page. I plan to share my thoughts, experiences, and updates/relevant information, which you might find helpful in supporting me. 

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I know and believe in Jesus Christ, His life, mission, and power. Faith in God is not simply believing in Jesus Christ, but trusting Him when the uncertainties of life arise. I have put my trust in God and know that He hears and answers prayers. I am depending on Him because He knows the course ahead.

Finally, I am not asking for anyone to feel sorry for me, or my family. CLL is a chronic condition, which I was first diagnosed with in 2013 and it is just now reaching the point of required treatment. It has a very optimistic prognosis. The treatment however is long and lasts between 15 months and two years. Thus, the documentation of my journey.
