My name is Sarah and at 23 years old my body started failing me in every way. After months of sickness, bruising, bone pain, weight loss, migraines, and barely enough energy to wake up each morning, I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
I learned I was not alone.
My support system and the people who came to be on my team helped me win what seemed like a never-ending battle.
I learned what a true homeostatic state is in my body, and how to restore it when needed. I had to change the way I lived my life in every sense to soley focus on the fight for my health back.
I learned to rest, I learned to eat, I learned to fight through the days depression tried to tie me to my bed. But the most important thing I learned is how to be a friend. If not for my friends who would make hospital visits, bring me comfort food, help me with my makeup, or just give me a hug, I would not have been able to win my fight. Now I fight to be the best version of myself in my everyday life.
