  • Relay for Life DJ shares story

     In February 2011, I was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia and my story all began with a skin cancer on my nose. Dr. Timothy Brown, my dermatologist, suspected leukemia as he examined the slides from the cancer he removed. The cells were abnormal and he quickly ordered additional blood work.

    I admit I was skeptical at first and thought the doctor was crazy. My wife pushed me to have the blood work done there in Dr. Brown’s lab the next day and I was given the horrific results. My platelet counts were so low that I could have bled out at any time.
