From Flu to AML

Last updated: October 2018

I found out I had AML 12 days later from my vacation to Ethiopia. On Feb 10, I went to the hospital that was close to me because I was not feeling good for 5 days after I got the flu when I went to school on the 5th of February. Spring class started on the 5th of February then I went to my night class and started getting sick. I couldn't recover from the flu at all in-fact it was getting worse. Then on Feb 10 2018 I went to the hospital and got diagnosed with AML.
