Here is her story:
On Monday, May 20th 2019, Brooke went into urgent care for bruises that covered her entire body. Thinking she was Anemic, the doctor ordered her to get blood work done. after her blood work came back she was sent directly to the emergency room due to extremely low platelets and low white blood cells. A few hours later Brooke was diagnosed with APL (Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia). She started chemo immediately and when day 2 came around, she had a bone marrow biopsy to confirm that she for sure had APL. Her treatment plan was then set in place. This caring bridge is set up for anyone wanting day by day updates on Brooke's progress to recovery. She is a fighter and this is a battle she's in to win! #Bstrong
