“Drop everything and come to my office now….”

By Laila Hardy Johnson ~

Those were the chilling words my oncologist said to me when we were still trying to figure out if Leukemia had returned after 9 years of remission! Terrified and pregnant, we took the longest ride to Manhattan. It’s hard for me to believe that was 4 years ago. I spent most of my pregnancy in treatment and once Luke arrived, I was whisked away after just 2 short weeks to receive a bone marrow transplant. The pic on left is right before I left and the one on the right is the day I got out of the hospital 5 weeks later. It took almost 2 years to really recover from the treatment. Today, I am healthy, happy and forever grateful. But, I want to do something about this hideous disease! Enough is enough!!

I am so tired of hearing about more and more people, children too, getting diagnosed with cancer. It robs people of precious time, at worst, their lives! Personally, I have spent over 4 years of my life trying to defeat Leukemia. Enduring awful side effects and isolation. I don’t want that for others.
