My name is Stephanie and I'm 18. I have been recently diagnosed with having ALL leukemia...and I know I'll beat this thing till the end...with no relapses...(knock on wood). That is one of my biggest fears though I'd have to admit. I'm worried that one day when I have a family all this will come back and I'll have to live this all over again....I was kinda hoping for some support and maybe some stories and experiences by people who have been cancer free.... :O)

Hello, Stephanie. The day that you posted this message was my 19-year anniversary of my diagnosis with ALL. I was 19 years-old at the time and I weathered 2 years of chemo and CNS treatment (radiation/intrathecal methotrexate). I am now 38, married and have 3 children ages 12, 10 and 18 months. I'll be glad to answer any questions that you or your family may have.
