My life has taken a surreal turn. I have been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. The good news is it's curable, but the treatment is very aggressive. I have started a rotation of one week in the hospital followed by two weeks home to continue for a projected six months. I appreciate all the support from friends, colleagues, and family and want everyone to know I'm in good spirits. I am looking at cancer as an unexpected tutor, teaching me deep, powerful lessons.
