Hello 34! As of January 2018, I am a 34-years-(young still, right?) cancer endurer who lives near the birthplace of Motown music, which is fantastic since they're my catchy tunes of choice! I choose to call myself, after talking with a wise woman who suggested the term, a "cancer endurer," since I'll be fighting a Tough, Unforgiving, Nonstop battle against cancer treatment devastating side effects my whole life. For nearly a decade from ages 13-21, I fought Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia. My eight-year battle against cancer included four relapses, two unrelated bone marrow transplants, the human body’s limit of chemotherapy & radiation, kidney dialysis, sixty doses of the investigational drug arsenic & many complications. I'm a writer & a fighter who's a poet so I show it. I believe our Almighty God gave me strength to simultaneously triumph over my life-changing cancer struggles & achieve a bachelor's degree with high honors. I also believe God has a special purpose for every single person He creates. Check out my Facebook account at https://www.facebook.com/amy.barta.33.
