I went in to the emergency room April 10th 2011 in Cedar City Utah, with in 20 min they had diagnosed me with leukimea. From there we went down to St. George cancer center where I was told I had ALL,CML, and AML with CNS .  I was told that because of the rareness of my disease that they could not treat me so I was sent up to LDS Hospital in SLC, UT. I spent 94 straight days in the hospital then moved to out patient treatment.  I have had a Bone Marrow Transplant from my brother who was a 100% match(very rare also). my last BCR-ABL test came back at .00043 almost undetectable. I am now fighting cGVHD which is a two edged sword good because it probably means i am having some GVL(graft versus leukimea) bad becase my my mouth is sore all the time and my lips are tight so it is hard to swollow and open my mouth to wide.
