(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.
