My name is Kat and I am 24 years old. I was diagnosed with A.L.L when I was 4 years old and I went into remission when I was 10. Though I was young I remember everything I went through from being diagnosed, through my chemo and treatments, all the way into my remission. From spinal taps, to leg shots, from watching friends I had made in the hospital dying of the same thing that I had, I remember it all. I have also been through many, MANY family deaths and triumphs through many various forms of cancer from lung to brain tumors, down to cervical and have seen the trials that not only one person faces with one type of cancer, but what many people face with many different types of cancers. I was at stage 3 when I was miraculously healed, the doctors also told me I would never be able to have children, and I am now a mother of 4. I am sure there are some people in the world who may not believe in God, but from what I learned, I fully believe in the power of prayer. I never lost my hair, and though I was in stage 3, I remember one check up I wasn't doing good at all, and in the following check up I had went into remission. Though it may be hard for people to believe in that, it is true, and so I am here, reaching out to others who may need advice, or someone to just listen while they vent, or for others who just want to talk with someone who has went through the same trials, I am here for you. I am not here to preach, or to tell you what to do or not to do, I am only here to be there for someone else. So thank you for reading this, and I hope you know you have people on here who do care, all of us, joining together, it's a beautiful thing.
