– I was diagnosed in 2017 with
AML, acute myeloid leukemia, which is a blood cancer that
affects the immune system. (light music) The doctor said, “Go directly
Methodist, the BMT Clinic.” So we did. I went four rounds of chemo, and then I got a transplant done. Killed off my immune system, got my brother’s stem
cells, and got a new life. I always say the biggest thing I gained, and the biggest thing I lost was time. You know, I lost some time with my kids being the hospital for multiple stints, but I gained time, and I’m here. You know, I used to hate
going to the grocery store, you know, I hated it. But now I wanna go to the grocery store ’cause I can, I don’t have to wear a mask. All I wanted is normalcy, and I got it. 23 months cancer free right now, and I wouldn’t have done it without Methodist, that’s for sure.
