Surviving acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and undergoing bone marrow transplant as a 19-year-old isn’t something most people do. In fact, it is something that only 50% of persons with my diagnosis and at my age do.1 One of 2 people who go through what I went through do not survive, and that’s a fact that weighed heavily on me. After almost 4 years of living through AML, my hair is much thinner, I weigh 60 lb less, and I have an entirely different perspective on life. But despite these changes, I found myself still struggling to acknowledge what it is that is truly different about me.
