I was also a councellor at a camp for children with Leukemia in Northern Ontario and I know from my own experience that it is sometimes easieer to speak to someone who has been through what your about to go through and knows ways to help other understand and I can also help parents as this can all be a whole new turn in your life…Hope to talk to you soon…

I was only 13 when I was told that I have Leukemia and in 1980 the odds were very low on survival and the whole world scared the ___ out of me but I managed to not give in and fought back, taking advantage of the Chemotherapy and radiation and just pushing myself to take the abuse i was recieving and over come it….Well thanks to some great Doc’s at Toronto’s Sick Childrens Hospital, My parents, Ronald Mc Donald House and some great friends I met along the journey, I had three children totally healthy and a great life.
After 32 years Im 100% healthy and you will be too….
if anyone has questons or would like to talk about life with Leukemia feel free to contact me at 250-883-7633 anytime night or day…I hope I can help…Derek
Hey everyone, I am Maddy (17), and I have this deep appreceation for teens going through cancer, so I want to know ways that I can personally help. I feel selfish to post this among your incredible stories and posts, but for for the last two years I have just wanted to support teens with cancer. I have been following and adoring this blog for quiet some time, and I finally decided to just post this. I am looking for suggestions of ways I can help teens in unique ways. I chat with a few people with cancer and stand as an online friend who can talk with them, which I love. It is however rare that I find someone who wants to email me as a friend, because they prefer to talk with other people who have can cancer and can directly relate, which, I completely understand. So here I am reaching out to you, looking for ways that I can help. I am up for knitting hats (cute hats, not cheesy hats), talking online, donating money to a fund, teaching other students about cancer, ect. Ideas anyone?
-Thank you all so much
Before I got cancer I was a out for control teen. But after a while I wanted to not be so negitive about my cancer.So I now try to think positive I got involed in art,partys,trips,and helping other teens and children with cancer like me. SO dont think of it as a punishment think maybe I got this to help others and better myself and be stronger for the future
Hi, my name is Taylor, and three days ago, I received one of the worst texts in my entire life. It was from my best friend, who I’ll refer to as lil ducky (Our nicknames for each other are lil ducky and ducky). It read; “I have some bad news, I have leukemia.” She is fifteen. My heart dropped and I went completely numb. I had no idea it was possible to be shaking so hard yet feel nothing. She had been sick for a few weeks, and I had even skipped out on Halloween so we could hangout at her house together.
At this time, I do not know many details, but am terrified. And then I think; :”If I feel like this, how must she feel?” Her family has been through so much already with her brother, who also has countless health issues as well. She is one of the most supportive, possitive and resilient people I have ever met.
All I want to do is see her, but I cannot until her first round of chemo is over.
Anyone have any advice or info? I’m so lost. It would be dearly appreciated.
I’m 16 years old i was diagnosed august 20th with Hodgkin s lymphoma I’m looking for teens my age who know what im going through and can relate to me.
comment if you would like to talk.
It is submitted that my nephew Faisal Ali age 5 years, resident of Wapda Colony G-7/4 Islamabad is patient of “Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia”. Faisal Ali has been treated in “Al Shifa Internation Hospital Islamabad G-1 Block Isolation Room”. Doctors said that the treatment of this disease is not possible in Pakistan. Parents of the patient are very poor and can’t afford the expenses for proper treatment of this disease. I need help from media to raise an appeal for treatment of this serious disease. You are requested to please make a donation to the patient for his treatment.
I shall be thankful to you for this kind act and will remember you in my prayers for this noble deed.

My husband is 32 years and was diagnosed with ALL January 9th 2012. It has definitely been a long journey so far for us on chemotherapy but are blessed to say he is in remission. We continue to fight daily! I am proud of my husband, and I admire him even more now. He is putting up a big fight for me & our children. I just want to know what really happens after chemo & maintenance?? Do people with Leukemia really go back to living a normal life?
My name is Samantha and on August 12th, 2012 my life changed forever. I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. When my family heard the news they broke down and cried. I cried for a minute then realized tears are not going to help me kick this cancer in the bum! My doctors were surprised that I was even there because I looked so healthy and the fact that I had AML since I’m 20 years old. I did one round of chemo (7+3 kind) and a round of consolidation chemo also. I have another 2 days of chemo and 4 days of radiation as part of my Bone Marrow Transplant work up. I’m nervous and excited for my BMT. It will mean that this nightmare will be over, but I’m nervous about the process of healing from the BMT. I would love to hear anyone’s experience with a BMT and radiation.
Also, if anyone would like someone to talk to please email at email@example.com
