In December 2005 while three months pregnant, I heard those words, "you have cancer". I was diagnosed with CML but couldn’t start my treatment of Gleevec until my son was born. Isaiah was born a healthy baby and shortly after, I began my daily chemo pill, Gleevec.
In February 2007, I was considered in remission. My family and I attended our first Light The Night in 2007 and our team has raised over $115,000 since then. I’m living proof that donations to LLS truly are going where they need to.
