    Hello, I was 10 years old in 1978 when I was diagnosed and trated for A.L.L. @ Wilford Hall Medical center in San Antonio, TX at lackland AFB. made it through quite a bit of treatement . aome experimental. Was treated for severe anxiety and PTSD in my Mid -Late 40's but it turned out it was the cause of a growing brain tumer as a result of cobalt radiation in 1978 on my frontal lobe . Tumor was removed 3 years ago, it was not cancer. Ohter then dealing with aquired epilepsy from the surgery and side effects from the medicine, @ 54 I am holding up pretty good ! 4 children and 3 grandchildren.

    Hi,

    I also had cancer in childhood, I had Leukemia LLA discovered when I was 9 years old (1999) and I treated until I had almost 13. Was around 2 years and a half of treatment between chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

    Today I am married and I would be more than happy to talk with you.
