Hey Everyone, I am a 20 year old survivor of Leukemia. I am a media studies and sociology major at the Claremont Colleges in Califonia. I am currently working on a documentary about the experience of cancer. I would love to hear peoples stories to include in my film. I am also open to talking to anyone, off the record. Hope to hear from you, and thank you.

Hello, I am a 36 year old survivor of Leukemia (26 years in remission). When diagnosed at 9, cancer was a whispered word and the odds of surviving it were pretty slim. BUT, I had a great support group of my family, an amazing doctor, and a frame of mind that I wasn't going to let this conquer me. That mindset has shaped my world (for better and for worse) and I think that I wouldn't be the person that I am today without having to experience this disease. If you'd like to talk, I'd love to hear from you!

Im a 27 year old Leukimia (ALL) survivor from San Diego, CA. 17 years in remission. I went through 4 years of Chemo and right in the middle of my treatment my Doc had medical burnout and left back to her native country. Lovely huh! Fortunately for me and a few other Childrens Hospital here in SD took over our care and got me to where I am today. Nice and Healthy. Let me know if you would like some input or anything.

Hey marmar - I'm a 14 year survivor, was diagnosed at 17yrs and am now 32. I was treated in the adult system; makes getting follow up a bit of a problem where I am. I'm excited to hear that a doc is being made by a survivor - right now I'm working slowly on a Master's degree, and fighting the bloody system. Also working slowly on learning disabilities within a new and innovative way that is helping with my 'chemo brain'. The doctors around here still try to tell me it doesn't exist (whatever ...). I'd love to share my tale of endurance and success ... best to you in your endeavour!
