I wanted to write you and update you on my health. I don't know if you remember me, but you were the only one in Naples that did bloodwork which saved my life! When no one else would listen to me and pawed me along to other doctors, you knew what to do and what to look for! 2017 was the original diagnosis of leukemia. I was treated here in Philadelphia by an amazing oncologist. However, last year I relapsed almost exactly a year from the first diagnosis. I had a stem cell transplant last August and just celebrated my one year anniversary this August 31st. A few expected hurdles, but I'm doing great!
I originally moved to Philly because I got a scholarship to finish my bachelor's degree. Throughout the treatments I continued school and I'm doing well there too!
I can't thank you enough for your common sense and insightfulness. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I wanted you to know how thankful I am to have you intervene so I could have a fighting chance!
God bless and happy holidays!
P.S. I'll be in Florida just not in Naples. However, if I get into town I will make sure to stop and say "hello"
