Hi Sarah-
My name is Kristi. I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) when I was turning 19. I am 21 now and still getting chemo, but I am in my last year of it. I would be glad to talk to you about anything!

Hi Sarah,
My name is Melissa. I was dx with ALL just about a year ago, March 2003. I am 38, married with two boys. I know you have probably been going through quite a bit the last 4 months. I would love to talk with you, or just listen, whatever you'd like. When I was first diagnosed, I would search out other survivors, just to know there was hope. I've found quite a few over the last year, and I'd be happy to share their stories as well. We are a small group, so it's nice to touch base with each other every once in awhile. Feel free to email me, and we can go from there. My email address is mnmjolly@aol.com. Also, I have kept a web page all through my journey, you are welcome to log on and check it out. The address is caringbridge.org/ok/mjolly. Wishing you the best.

Melissa

Hi Sarah. My name is Hobey and my sister, Keala, also has ALL. She is 21 and was diagnosed about 2 and a half months ago. Ironically enough, she is also a pre-med student. I'm sure she'd love to talk to you. Her screen name here is "keala". I know she could use a friend just as much as you could. I hope you are doing well.-Hobey

Hi Sarah, how are you doing now? I was diagnosed with ALL at age 22 and I am now in maintenance therapy. I'm looking for any young adults in a similar situation or any survivors' stories to help me through this ordeal. Thank you in advance!
