    So I was just diagnosed with leukemia. I have to admit I'm frightened. Anyone else with it around here?

    My younger Cousin had leukemia at 19 and now, 6 years later, she's fine.
    I am not 100 percent sure anymore what form it was, but it was very agressive, and she already had cancer cells in her brain. She was diagnosed almost a little late with it, but still, she beat it in the end.
    I wish you the best of luck and the most important thing: Stay positive!
    I hope you have family and friends to support you in these hard times!

    I know several people that have battled several types of cancers and won. Keep a positive attitude man. I watched my mom battle with cancer when I was a kid, and she is healthy now. Hang in there!

    My second cousin had leukemia 10 years ago in her early 20s, got a bone marrow transplant from her brother, went through treatments and has been well for the years since. She's overseas now working for a charitable organization in Nepal.

    She had a tough challenge in the treatments, but I'd say she is back to a normal life now, with regular checkups, as this kind of illness requires vigilance.

    Best wishes for recovery and return to good health, tallguy. I hope you have a support system around you of family, friends and excellent health professionals.

    It nothing that anyone wants to hear but know that it IS beatable. Stay positive, stay strong and know that many that don't even personally know you are sending positive thoughts and prayer your way. You CAN and you WILL beat it.

    It's beatable. Take courage & heart from anywhere you can & arm yourself with everything you can to beat it. Let me know how it goes.

    I beat cancer last year. No trace of it left, after surgery and two rounds of chemo. My five sisters have all beaten it. My brother has, as well, and he lost a lung. Leukemia is very treatable. All cancer is so much more responsive to chemo than it ever was before. Picture the cancer cells leaving your body, and yourself radiating health from the inside out. I'll be thinking about you, and sending some positive thoughts your way. People are pulling for you.

    Sorry to hear of your diagnosis. I hope you beat this. Work closely with your doctor, and any referred doctors he recommends. I've heard of this disease being defeated. I hope you too can beat this. We're all pulling for you. Just stay positive and I know you will come out of this ahead of the game. Bless and keep you safe. Don't delay on getting this disease in check. You can do this.
