Part 15 said I had something to tell you.
I have stage III leukemia.
For those of you who don't know what that is
A cancer of blood-forming tissues, hindering the body's ability to fight infection.
Or where your body makes too many white blood cells.
stage 0: too many lymphocytes in the blood but no other symptoms
stage I: lymph nodes are swollen because too many lymphocytes are being made
stage II: lymph nodes, spleen, and liver are swollen because too many lymphocytes are being made
stage III: anemia has developed because lymphocytes are crowding out red cells in the blood.
stage IV: there are too few platelets in the blood. The lymph nodes, spleen, and liver may be swollen. Anemia may be present
And the doctors aren't exactly... optimistic about it. They told me that there is a good chance I will die before my 18th birthday. I'm 15 now. Just saying. I don't want to die.
So... um... glad I told you about that.
