Two natural compounds that have strong anti-cancer activity and affect multiple pathways. There’s quite a bit of overlap between these two, but also some antagonism as well, so if you decide to supplement these pay attention to the required dosing schedule. I take ECGC in the morning and curcumin about 12 hours later. The sequence matters too. ECGC first is better than curcumin and then ECGC at least for CLL.

Curcumin Inhibits Pro-survival Pathways in CLL B-cells and has the Potential to Overcome Stromal Protection of CLL B-cells in Combination with EGCG

Turmeric and green tea: a recipe for B-Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

VEGF receptor phosphorylation status and apoptosis is modulated by a green tea component, epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), in B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia

No, I don't. Should I? I typed it wrong multiple times too! It's supposed to be EGCG! Tagged wrong too!

So I know there's been some discussion on which form of curcumin is "best". I believe I saw Daniel weigh in on this one somewhere. I'm not sure if this paper was discussed previously. If so, I apologize. 

A Comparative Pharmacokinetic Assessment of a Novel Highly Bioavailable Curcumin
Formulation with 95% Curcumin

Clearly, Meriva, Theracumin, CurQfen, and BioCurc come out on top with BioCurc being the bioavailability champ. I believe the makers of BioCurc sponsored this study. Anyway, I just wanted to share it in case it hadn't been discussed previously.

A while ago I checked on a variety of curcumin supplements and I came up with a list of good options:

But I agree with Daniel on Curcumin supplements, the C3-complex is the product with the most studies to back up its effectiveness.
