Marcia's Story

Last updated: March 2019

After a terrible migraine and nausea, I went to the emergency room. After scans and blood work, I was diagnosed with polycythemia vera.

Actually, it was May 23, 2017... I'll never forget it.

My two sons live in Orlando, my daughter lives close but cannot accept it and will never discuss my situation and illness.
