I was diagnosed with Leukemia (JMML) at 2 months and received a bone marrow transplant at 14 months. I underwent chemotherapy and full body radiation. I then experienced severe graft vs host disease.
Later in life I went into heart failure in August 2009 and was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy and myocarditis most likely due to previous cancer treatment. In May 2009 I received a heart transplant. Soon after, two brain tumors were found and removed in 2010 and 2011.
Since the heart transplant I have had several non heart related medial issues. Some resolved and some not.
