Hi, my name is Keith Stewart, I'm a consultant in hematology, and I'm director of the Center for Individualized Medicine at Mayo Clinic. Patients have a very important role to play in their own care, to make decisions with your physician, rather than just accepting whatever proposal the physician offers.

We get to know them well. We get to know their families. We get to know their quirks, their personalities. And that's part of the fun of what we do. Thereafter, I think it's important the patient has a good support system, family and friends that can help them through the difficult days, if there are some. And also, celebrate with them when good things happen.

Part of the joy of what we do is making them feel better, particularly over the first four to six months of the disease, and offering them hope and promise. Because we know they're going to live a long time with appropriate therapies.
