Hi Gang! My name is Michael and I am an acute leukemia survivor! I was diagnosed when I was 21 and I am now 30. I have read many postings here and gotta say I am honored to be in the company of such brave, and inspiring young people! It seems you all can teach the rest of the world a thing or two about whats important and whats worth worrying about. I've designed a website for blood related cancers, but I also offer many resources and links for many other cancers as well. I have a guest book and a message board. Just in case you wish to take a peek, here is the address: www.geocities.com/leukemia_lymphoma
here is my email: leu_lym@yahoo.com
I would love to hear from any and all of you! Lets share stories of what it was like on the front lines, or simply introduce yourself! Well, take care and God bless to all of you!
-Michael :)
PS: How many of you think we can show those people on "Survivor" how its REALLY done!

Hello Mike, Wow, we could show them how it's done without even having to eat anything disgusting!

Hey Mike! I am happy to see u makin efforts to inform others and I think we could show those on "Survivor" how its really done. Though survivor is fake for the most part what they did doesnt compare to what it takes to survive a diease. I hope u are doing well.

I don't know if you get on frequently, but I was also diagnosed at 16.

I KNOW we could take those survivors on any day! I love everything you've said and have done. I think that is so so awesome. I would love to talk and get to know you better. I love the bond being a survivor gives you. Looking forward to hearing from you :)
