On February 23, 2016, I was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphoma Leukemia (also known as CLL). Like any one else with a cancer diagnosis, you wonder is this treatable. As a patient of the Sara Cannon Cancer Center at Lee's Summit Medical Center, I was able to work with Dr. Larry Rosen and a great team of nurses. They all helped me to understand my treatment options as well as the experience I would face going through chemotherapy. After six months of chemotherapy, with the love and support, and many prayers from my wife, children, family, friends, church family, and co-workers, I was blessed to hear the golden words, "you are in remission" on July 21, 2016. Thank you to everyone for your help during this challenging time in my life. My experience with CLL, has made me appreciate the work of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) and the work they do to help cancer patients like myself. Through God's Grace and Mercy, I am celebrating five years cancer free! I would love to do my part and continue to bring awareness to this blood order disease and raise money for those still currently being affected.
