Do you really know how good it is to feel alive?
I want to tell you my good news and I know when people ask me most of the time I say I'm OK.
Well time for the truth on the 14th of June 2002 one day before my 39th birthday I was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML).
Here is what I didn't tell people at the time I had a 5% chance of surviving. My bone marrow did not match my brother's so I couldn't have a bone morrow transplant.
The doctor told me I could go on trial drugs which to me meant less time in hospital and away from my family.
So that is what I did and over the last ten years I have lost count have many blood tests, bone marrow bi ops, injections (some I had to give myself which freaked me out)
and so many visits to doctors and hospitals.
Today I was told I have a zero count which means if I can stay on zero for the next 2 years maybe I can get off my meds.
This is what I have been hoping for so many years now and at last I got the news today.
I am not just living with CML now I am beating it.
I am so happy today I want to tell the world.
