Meet Russ

Looking back after his Ph+ CML diagnosis, Russ realized he had been tired and sleeping more for some time before the sudden abdominal pain that sent him to the hospital. Learning that he had Ph+ CML was difficult, but letting his students down was not an option. Russ has remained committed to their education and his own.
