Hi, my name is Rebecca. I was diagnosed with ALL November 15, 1988. I was 12 and in 7th grade. I was treated at the Valerie Center in Summit, NJ.

This year will be 30 years since my diagnosis and I'm doing pretty well . I'm looking to chat with fellow childhood cancer survivor and see how everyone is doing in their adulthood.

    Hi Rebecca,

    I have a very similar start.

    The summer of 1988 I was diagnosed with ALL at 11 years old. I was overseas and treated at a research hospital in the UK and finished it out here in the USA.

    I'm doing alright at 42 I suppose. But it has been a struggle. Please feel free to chat.
