July 13, 2020

“When time passes, and you look back it seems like a distant memory.”

In 2016, Juliana’s world was turned upside down when she was diagnosed with Acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) — an aggressive type of acute myeloid leukemia in which there are too many immature blood-forming cells (promyelocytes) in the blood and bone marrow.

“When time passes, and you look back it seems like a distant memory,” she said. “There's times I'm like, ‘Did I really go through that?’ There are times that I do things like this I share my story and I'm like, this seems like an out of body experience. This doesn't seem like it happened to me.”
