I was born in Chihuahuha, Chihuahua Mexico.When I was 3yrs old my mom noticed that I started limping. She did not know why and decided to take me to go see a doctor. From there they took some tets to try to find out what was wrong. And found by my blood tests that I had lukemia. They did not know how I got it and neither did my mom. I went through treatment in Mexico for a year or so, but I needed better treatment because at he age of five my cancer got worse so my mom and I came to the United States to live with my aunt and cousins in Kansas. There I started school and tried to make the better of my life. But again they did not have they best machines to help me. So at he age of six we moved to Witchita, KS. Finally they were able to help me there. My mom never left my side she has been with me through everything. And well I went through kemotherophy and radiation. Which made me feel so weak because they were strong treaments. Their actually came a poin where the docoter did not think I would make it.... but somehow thanks to God and my mom and the strengh they gave me, I made it. I have been in remission for 8years I am now 16 yrs old and am cured of Lukemia. I wanted to share my storty because it was something so hard for me and my whole family to go through.... and a great miricale that I am here today. This experience has matured me so much and taught me to enjoy my life to the fullest because you never know what might happen...

Hi hun, its fantastic that u have come through all that to win the day. You are very right when u do come through a serious life threating illness it puts things into perspective, u realise how fragile life can be, so u live every moment to the full, life is very precious, it has a way of throwing things at u, u just duck & dive and never give up and never loose hope. I hope u continue to do well, and well done ! :)
