Cancer: Acute Myeloid Leukemia
Written by Megan Jones
"I now love differently, see differently, and live my life with a lot more meaning and joy."
My name is Megan Jones, I am 26 years old and was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia FLT-3 in December of 2018. I was living a normal, healthy, fitness involved lifestyle when I suddenly began to drastically fatigue in November of 2018. I have been through induction chemo, 3 consolidated chemotherapies, and a bone marrow transplant that was on May 8, 2019. I was very blessed to have my older sister, Brittany, as my 100% matched donor. I am currently +84 days post-transplant and spend my time as an outdoor enthusiast, going to church, spending quality time with my family, and blogging my fitness life after transplant as an encouragement to others. Cancer was the best thing that ever happened to me. God needed me to just be still during those 7-8 months. I now love differently, see differently, and live my life with a lot more meaning and joy.
