NCF Participant, North Carolina
"I speak of the unfailable support you provide me with whenever appropriate. As a health care professional and leukemia patient, I cannot imagine why every person diagnosed is not given this incredible resource. I believe there is power in knowledge. I spend more time talking about and living my life and not my disease."
