January 15 th , 2018 is a day that changed my life forever. At
the time I was a 22 year old, recent college graduate. I was
working full time, living at home to save up for my own place. The
previous month I had lifted a heavy box in the garage and tore the
labrum in hip. I was on crutches and in a lot of pain. I had seen the
orthopedic doctor earlier that month and he recommended I get an
MRI to show the tear and he could surgically repair it. I’m a
former college athlete so these type of injuries I’m used to seeing,
but this pain was the worst I had felt ever (including worse than
breaking my collarbone or dislocating my shoulder). After about a
month of pain, I finally got the MRI done, and was waiting to hear
back from the doctor on when to schedule my surgery. He called
back and said that my “bone marrow looks different, it could be
nothing or it could be something. So, go get blood work drawn and
we will discuss everything after”. I didn’t know what bone marrow
was, so I thought maybe my injury was worse and not only had I
torn the ligament, but I had actually chipped the bone. Well, 11
vials of blood work later and at 9:00 P.M. on January 15 th , 2018 the
doctor called back. “Reid I don’t usually like to give bad news late
at night because all it does is cause people to worry, but we have
caught it so early I thought important to tell you now. Reid you
have evidence of Acute Leukemia. Vanderbilt (Medical Center)
has a spot available and is expecting you.”
I was admitted the next day where my long journey to
defeating this disease began. After 5 and half rounds of chemo, and
a successful stem cell/bone marrow transplant, I’m on my way to
beating it! After this very long year of fighting, I’m now looking to
give back and help others who are fighting that same fight. The
Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) has helped my family,
and other families like mine, so much so that it felt right to start
with the LLS. Their research helps develop new treatments, not
only for blood cancers but other cancers as well (such as liver or
stomach). It was a honor to be nominated for the LLS’s Man of the
Year. I look forward to raising as much funds and sharing my story
all for such a worthy cause.
