I was diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia on June 4, 2001. After my initial treatment, my cancer went into remission for five years. When the cancer came out of remission, I had a bone marrow transplant.
My team, led by David Porter, MD, was there to support me and lead me through each step of the treatment process. It all came together. After 36 days in the hospital, I was home and I was returning to normal.
