Ursa's Story! 

Hi! My name is Ursa Khan.  I'm from Old Bridge, NJ. 
I am 28 years old and the first time I was diagnosed was back in July of 2009. During my treatment phase for AML I was on an aggressive Chemotherapy that had me become very septic and was later induced into a coma from August to October. I was fortunate enough to have a stem cell transplant in 2010. I was able to pick up the pieces from my transplant and since then I graduated with Honors for my ASN degree from Middlesex County College on May 2016,  I  graduated in December 2018 with Presidential Honor from Chamberlain University, and I also got my Certification license in February 2019.
I was living life as an adult with a respectable prestigious career, unfortunately, life is very unpredictable and I relapsed from a new form of AML leukemia in March 2019.  Because it is a new mutated form the donor's blood was not able to recognize the cell and unluckily for me the cancer took over my donor's blood and once again took over my body.

What drew me into the field of nursing were the amazing nurses that took care of me, the nurses who advocated for me and my family. I am lucky to be living as long as I am and even if my outcome is not what we are all hoping for, I am happy with just how much I accomplished in my nine years!

Sincerely,
Ursa Khan
