I was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) in June of 2007. I went through 5 rounds of chemotherapy after I was diagnosed. Doctors said I had a good prognosis and chemotherapy alone would kill off the leukemia. Unfortunately, after 6 months of being cancer free, it has returned and everything has to be put on hold again, including school and my wedding.
For those of you who don't know me, I grew up in San Jose, CA, went to Morrill Middle School, Independence High School and graduated from UCLA. At the time of diagnosis, I was attending pharmacy school in Virginia. Luckily, I was back home in California on a six week rotation.
