AML Survivor

I am a Acute Myeloid Leukemia survivor. I was diagnosed on memorial day of 2018 and thats where my story began. I failed to reach remission on induction chemotherapy but the next round of chemo I received called FLAGIDA put me in remission.

I then was transferred to duke for a stem cell transplant. My first transplant was unsuccessful and my mother stepped in to donate her cells. This second transplant put me in remission and now I'm back doing what I love which is CrossFit and Olympic weightlifting. I also am coaching at my local crossfit gym.
