Confidence and Self-Esteem

Confidence and self-esteem is definitely one of the areas that get hit when doing treatment for leukemia. Funny thing is that my confidence and self-esteem did not really take a hit until I went through my bone marrow transplant. Losing my hair did not really bother me; I embraced my bald head and wore big earrings to give my new look some bling - lol! Being an athlete, other changes impacted me.

That's not everyone's story. Others' confidence may have taken a hit from the very beginning. Either way, I'm here to tell you, you're not alone and together the glow-up is going to be REAL! Just watch!
