The crisis started with a persistent high fever. Doctors said it was probably a virus. Then they diagnosed my Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). We were first informed that it would be a 3-year treatment for A-L-L and I would begin chemo immediately. During my first week in the hospital, I needed a blood transfusion and they also needed to insert a port for easier access when infusing the chemo. It was all so surreal- so many questions, so many prayers. I went home to begin clinic treatments once a week. At the end of the first month, we received more news after a follow up lab test: I also had markers for Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), which made me BiPhenotypic- a rarer form of leukemia. We would have to immediately begin a series of three 30-day aggressive chemo treatments and then begin preparing for a Bone Marrow Transplant. My family made sure I had the best weekend at home before we had to check in for my first full month of treatment for AML.
