AML (Leukemia), YOU SMELL!!!!!!!

On April 25, 2017, I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). It all started with a rash that appeared on my leg. The rash did not hurt or itch. Upon showing my wife, whom is not only an amazing woman, but also an awesome nurse, she educated me that it actually was petechiae. She told me that I needed to go to the doctor and get blood work done to cover all my bases. Well, good thing I listened to my wife, and went the to doctor, because it was leukemia.

Needless to say our world is completely turned upside down. We just take it day by day. We have two beautiful girls (one is 3yrs old and the other is 1yr old). They are being troopers through all of this. I am currently getting treated at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX.

Unfortunately, the world doesn't stop because you have cancer. I am no longer able to work because of my treatment. My wife is barely working because she accompanies me. The bills are growing and the paychecks are shrinking. All the donations are greatly appreciated and will be used for medical bills.
