I was diagnosed in December 2013 with blood cancer. I started my treatment in January 2014. I continued treatment until March 2018 until I had a Bone Marrow Transplant at Duke Medical Center.
I worked every day until it was time to take FMLA. I was out of work for 8 weeks. It's been 2 yrs 8 months. I'm CANCER FREE and I'm in REMISSION. I can't thank the physicians, and the team and God. I've retired after 22 years working for Mecklenburg County.
I received my last shots in October, and I rung the "Victory Bell" at the Levine Cancer Institute in Charlotte, NC.
