It all started with a cough. I didn’t think much of it at first, but it wouldn’t go away. I was so tired all the time, and I felt like I was always short of breath. I went to the doctor and they ran some tests. I was shocked when they told me I had Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia.
At first, I was scared. I had heard of leukaemia, but I never thought it would happen to me. I was overwhelmed with all of the information the doctor was giving me, and I wasn’t sure what to do. I was told that I would need to start chemotherapy right away.
The chemotherapy was hard. I was constantly nauseous and tired. I had to take a lot of medication, and it was hard to keep up with it all. I had to go to the hospital every week for treatments, and I felt like I was always there. I was so exhausted all the time, but I kept pushing through.
The treatments seemed to be working, and I was feeling better. I was able to go back to work and do some of the things I enjoyed. I was still tired, but I was slowly getting my strength back.
It’s been a long journey, but I’m finally in remission. I’m so thankful for all the doctors and nurses who helped me through this difficult time. I’m also thankful for my family and friends who were there for me when I needed them the most.
I’m still dealing with the side effects of the treatment, but I’m feeling better every day. I’m so grateful to be alive and healthy. I’m looking forward to the future and all the things I can do now that I’m in remission.
This journey through Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia has been a difficult one, but I’m so thankful for the strength and courage it has given me. I’m looking forward to the many adventures that lie ahead.
My name is John, and I’m a survivor of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia.
