Lakers Players Picture: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar dunking the ball.
Kareem Abdul Jabbar recently made a public announcement that he has been diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia.
Having lost one of his close friends due to this disease; Jabbar says shows him how serious this was.
Being a leading scorer, won five championships with the Los Angeles Lakers before retiring in 1989. He was diagnosed with CML in December 2008 and is being treated with a medicine that targets the abnormal protein that causes his leukemia. With treatment, Abdul-Jabbar, who currently is a coach with the Lakers, is expected to live a full, active life.

“I’m telling my story to encourage fellow patients to take charge of their health,” he said. “Work closely with your doctor, monitor your disease and, above all, take your medicine."
