On 22nd November 2004, I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia.
I decided then and there that I was going to fight this disease with positivity, optimism, reality & science. The idea of documenting and sharing my experience via a website quickly evolved. Thus, exactly three weeks after my diagnosis, miltcentral was born.
It is coming up to 9* years since diagnosis- a length of time I was unlikely to witness- and am feeling great, and enjoy a wonderful. busy & healthy life.
I share my story in the hope that it inspires those with leukaemia, their carers and those facing life-threatening challenges in their lives.
My blogposts during leukaemia treatment can be read here.
*16 and counting.

YOU ARE A INSPIRATION.I wasn’t always abe to go to his appts. So you gave me the opportunity to see all the steps cancer patients have to go through. You truly are a magnificent person with super hero powers and bravery. I hope we continue to be able to see your progress even after you’ve been cured. Thank You and your family for sharing your journey with us.Love
Angela Kempton and family.
