On June 8th, I had just come back from holidays in France with my family the previous day where I was experiencing random bruising and a sore knee as symptoms. I had organised a blood test with my local doctor for when I arrived home. Within 2 hours of getting the blood taken, my parents got a call for me to go to the local hospital and to maybe pack a bag as I might be transferred to St. James' Hospital in Dublin. I knew instantly something was wrong. My diagnosis was Philedelphia Positive Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. That same day, I was transferred to Dublin, had a catheter in my neck, bone marrow biospy and chemotherapy, all within 24 hours of arriving home. I had an allosteric stem cell transplant in October 2018 and was given the all-clear in November 2018.
