Getting the diagnosis of chronic myeloid leukemia, Bud

Interviewee: Bud. Bud recounts receiving the diagnosis that he had chronic myeloid leukemia. (DNAi Location: Applications > Genes and medicine > Drug design > Bud's Story > "A death sentence")
It was devastating there I didn't know what to do, you know, that's a death sentence. Was then. It was a death sentence. They gave me two or three years is what he gave me and that was eight years ago. I've been into it five now out of eight. So I beat it by five so far but of course that's, you know what it is, Gleevec™ there has helped me out.
