Weehaw, just celebrated my birthday last month. Significance? Hold onto your jaw...45 years in remission!! I almost missed out on my 5th birthday and all of life up to now. but thanks to medical science and dedicated health care professionals, I'm still here today. Sure I regret being cheated by cancer, mistreated in the hospitals, suffering the treatment and ills. Now I can offer hope to children everywhere, not that I ever got that when I was little. You too, can count yourself lucky and show the world WE CAN LIVE!! 19 yrs? EXCELLENT! keep on going.

Thanks for wanting to help. I was looking to find what services were offered for children and their families during treatment. I plan to use some of the information gathered to better help the children and famiies who are currently being treated. I think there is a relationship between your supports during treatment and what we as survivors use now in times of stress. OUr survey closed on 3/28/03 so we are now testing the data. I'm glad to hear there are other survivors out there who are in the social work field. I think we can offer a much needed perspective not only to the families but to the practitioners as well. Keep it up!

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.
