I am a Hemapoetic Stem Cell Transplant Survivor and Leukemia (AML) patient. There are very few books published on this topic, those that are remain best sellers, although surely outdated. My dream since I was a little girl was to become an author. Diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous at age 35, I am proud to say I am a survivor. I am compelled to share my outrageous story to help those living with blood cancers.
I am a Leukemia Lymphoma Society volunteer, (first connection) I speak to those in my shoes and find it very rewarding. This experience has also enlightened me, just as much as survival has.
The allogenic stem cell transplant I endured was not only cutting edge but risky, I felt so alone. I craved survival stories, and found very few.
I am currently 40 years old and still plugging away, my goal, to become the author of: Persevere, My Stem Cell Story.
