Calliope Poppa Road To Recovery

Hi I’m your host Calliope Poppa from New Orleans, La, now residing in Baton Rouge La. I was diagnosed with a serious illness in Jan ,2017.
Leukemia- (Blood Cancer) 
On July 21st I Passed Out While I Was Hosting.
Once Admitted to Our Lady Of The Lakes Hospitals Doctors Discovered That Due To Depression and Severe Asthma It Had Made The Virus More Aggressive. 

Hearing this news really took a toll on me mentally, and physically. And I disregarded the Dr’s orders, and I Continued to do what I loved, and that was to be the voice for my people that were being brutalized by police,  I stood front and center in the stop the violence march for Mr Alton Sterling.
A Mass Rally That Was Seen And Heard Around The World By Millions.

I Will Be Admitted to M.D Anderson Hospital In Houston, Tx To Start Chemo, as soon as i am Well Enough To Fully Breathe and Move about Freely. 

I Thank You Guys In Advance For All The Love And Support. Lets Beat This
