Producer Kendall here! Today I got some beautiful orange nails to celebrate my most recent leukemia blood test which showed I am still, "cured" and leukemia free according to my Oncologist Dr. Law! For those who may just be learning: I was diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia on September 4th, 2019. I was admitted into the hospital the night I was diagnosed and immediately started on chemotherapy which was followed by a bone marrow biopsy the next morning. I was in the hospital for 1 month where I received my chemotherapy and numerous platelet and blood transfusions and once I was able to leave the hospital after a month I continued my daily 3 hour long chemotherapy arsenic infusions and ATRA chemo pills for 8 months. I am now happy to say I am cancer free thanks to the hard work of my amazing Oncologist Dr. Law and all of my nurses I love so much at the infusion center! I couldn't have won this battle with out all of the love and prayers from our listeners <3
The APL is gone but I will need to have my blood monitored for the rest of my life and my blood tests are currently spread out every 6 months. I got my blood test on March 17th ( St. Patrick's Day ) because I needed all the luck I could get! I waited for about 2 weeks for cancer results which is always very scary and anxious waiting to for blood test results to see if the cancer had returned. My great friend NaNa at Royal Nails always makes me feel so beautiful when she does my nails! She is so sweet and creative and this set was an extra special one because of the meaning for me and significance of the orange color. I just love these vibrant orange tips and orange leukemia ribbon sending a message spreading leukemia awareness, paying tribute to those who have lost their battle, giving strength to those who may be fighting now and sending love to leukemia survivors out there like me.
Thank you so much to my beautiful friend NaNa for always making me feel so happy with pretty nails and so relaxed and pampered <3
NaNa is the best! Thank you, NaNa <3
