On October 6, 2015, at 26 years old, I was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). A month later, I was in remission. I completed six months of chemotherapy and am so grateful to be back at my normal life.
One thing I learned early on is that when one person is diagnosed with cancer, so are their friends and family. My journey has not been one I have gone through alone, I have gone through it with the love and support of the people I love.
