I was diagnosed in 2000 at the age of 3 with ALL. I went through 2.5 years of chemotherapy. I’m 19 years old now, and I’ve been in remission for 16 years, but…I have had multiple late effects from treatment. If I could say anything to my cancer it would be “You ruined my life.” My favorite food is tamales. I love green corn tamales because they are delicious! I would love to travel to Germany some day.
