ALL Survivor

SAINT LOUIS, MO

On July 15, 2018, I went to the ER after feeling sluggish and weak the day before. I was kept in the hospital and on July 17, I was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).

Leukemia changed my life. From that day, I received chemotherapy for 43 days. It took me at least eight months to achieve remission and it was and still is a very hard fight. But I refused to give up. I am now a candidate for a bone marrow transplant.

During that time, I lost over 80lbs and as of today, I have gained almost all of it back. I'm still getting chemo treatments every other week but I'm doing great and thank god that I am a survivor.
