Two weeks ago, I was told my cancer had returned. It was devastating news and has
taken some time to process. For those who know me, know that this will be my eighth attempt to beat this cancer. My battle with leukemia (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) began nearly eight years ago and has consumed most of my energy and resources. Considering this is a journey I am all too familiar with I choose to do something different – something I’ve never done before – I choose to write my way through this next part of this journey
I will post here regularly to provide updates on my treatment and to discuss topics related to cancer therapy. I’m not sure where this will take me, but writing is healing and I want nothing more than to tell the world how HORRIBLE CANCER REALLY IS – and how we (all of those involved with advancements in cell therapy) are trying to make a difference.
When I am in need of inspiration or need a form of release, I will use this blog as my guide.
I would like to end this first blog post by thanking all of my supporters – especially over the past two weeks. For those of you who reached out and sent prayers my way, I could not be more grateful. Stay tuned for my future blog post about the gift of inspiration.
I will post an update on my treatment regimen as I find out more this week. For now, I am home and getting outpatient chemo.
I’ve never loved home so much :).
