(I wanted to updated/add to my “About Alyssa”, because I have come so far since I have started this blog. Here are some updates.)
Hi my name is Alyssa Marie! I am now 16 years old and 6 months. As of June 9th this year, I will be 2 years out of treatment. I had Pre B cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (also know as ALL) and was diagnosed on February 20, 2013. Cancer took hold of my life for the past few years, but now I am taking it back. Today I am living my life outside of the hospital, outside of the wheelchair, and beyond the chemo. I now go to public school, barely missing days. I now walk in school and everywhere else. I have accomplished so much and come so far. I have come back from all the surgeries. I have fought my way back to recovery. Now I am living each day, a day at a time. Taking advantage of every moment.
Hi, my name is Alyssa. I am fourteen years old. I had Pre B cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (also know as ALL) and was diagnosed on February 20, 2013. As of June 9, 2015 I am considered cancer free. I had cancer but cancer didn’t define who I was. I am kind, caring, intelligent, trustworthy, beautiful, and most of all a child of God. Some of my interests are fashion, reading, drawing, writing, baking, NASCAR, spending time with my family and sharing the Word of God with non-believers.
I have always enjoyed writing stories and about what is going in my life. Now, that I am blogging I can use the posts to encourage other kids my age going through what I have gone through and let them know that they aren’t alone. I thank God for this opportunity.
I am a family person, I love spending time with them. I am so thankful for my family. Without them I don’t know what I’d do. I am so blessed to have my family by my side to fight childhood cancer. I thank them for always supporting me and loving me. Cancer doesn’t just affect the person with it but the whole family. With my families trust in God and our love and support we can concur anything!
” I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, be an example for the believers in the way you talk, the way you act, in faith, and purity. 1 Timothy 4:12
