The world's leading Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia physicians are at MD Anderson in Texas. Please help us raise the funds for our Dad.

Jim Mickelsen was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia about 12 years ago. He was treated very successfully for 6 years. Jim has what is called a P17 deletion; often called the "dreaded P17" in the medical field, which causes the disease to progressively become unstable. Jim has been through six lines of therapy and a bone marrow transplant. He has survived two bouts of bacterial pneumonia, fungal pneumonia, a brain bleed and West Nile Virus over the past 3 years. Jim is married to Analee, together they are the parents of 12 children and 10 grandchildren. Please help us as we raise funds for our dad to see the world's leading experts in CLL.
