I was diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, ALL, on March 25, 2012 at the age of 11. I'm in remission! My St. Jude treatment protocol, Clinical Trial Total XVI, will last a total of 2.8 years, ending in October 2014. I'm under the care of Dr. Ching-Hon Pui, who i like to refer to as the Lebron James of ALL Leukemia Doctors. Dr. Pui's sole purpose in life is to not only develop a cure for ALL Leukemia but to find a way to prevent it. Dr. Pui is supported by the Dwayne Wade of nurses and Miss Martha May at St. Jude takes amazing care of me and my family.
Since I live in Charlotte, North Carolina I travel back and forth to St. Jude every month for certain treatments. When I’m not at St. Jude I receive treatments at Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte. While at Levine I’m under the care Dr. McMahon who heads up Pediatric Oncology for Levine. I’m lucky to have the best taking care of me!
