Today is the day.
Today is my "anniversary" or "birthday" if you will. Cancerversary?
Today marks one year exactly from the day I was diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia. (CML)
Today is a day to celebrate my one year mark of survival.
Today is also International CML Awareness Day.
Today... 9-22 is significant because it is the chromosomes 9 and 22 which mutate and cause CML. This is called a Philadelphia positive chromosome.
Today is a good day because I'm still here and I'm happy there is a chemo pill I take every day that keeps my Leukemia chronic and not aggressive.
I wish I wasn't alone today. I wish there were others with me. I wish someone could celebrate this special "Life Day" with me.
