  • I can imagine.

  • So you're trying.

  • I'm sorry.

  • Good.

  • Go ahead.

  • I was saying it's triggering a lot of PTSD for me, for the health complications that I've had.

  • Now you're compromised.

  • Immune system makes you especially high risk for Cove in 19 year leukemia survivor now in treatment for breast cancer.

  • What kind of therapies do you have to have?

  • Well, right now, I'm not currently going under any therapies, but what the biggest issue and risk for me is that I'm a five year leukemia survivor and leukemia.

  • I had a bone marrow transplant.

  • I don't have my own DNA, and I have a habit of actually rejecting some blood transfusions.

  • Fast forward.

  • Five years later, I was diagnosed with breast cancer likely due to the full body radiation to save my life.

  • I've been home since January.

  • If they say sit home till June or July, I'm okay with that because I just want to see my son grow up.

  • It's pretty simple.

  • The other thing.

  • I tell people That's one thing I can control and it is stay home.

  • The other thing is, and I said this from when I was diagnosed with leukemia is what I call the three p's of armoring up for life.

  • That's prepare, present prevailed.

  • And I say that we all have to prepare each and every day in our lives of how prepared we show up to any illness.

  • I'm prepared.

  • The best I can be the best version of myself, so I can present well.

  • I was supposed to see my leukemia.

  • Dr Johns Hopkins.

  • Now you know, Johns Hopkins is a global leader in fighting Copan.

  • 19 talking with my leukemia doctor and my infectious disease team at Johns Hopkins.

  • They did not feel it was safe for me to come in, even though I need to know if I'm in remission from a very risky surgery of a double mastectomy for a bone marrow transplant survivor.

  • I know it's very complex, but talking with them, they said, We don't want you to come into the building until June 3rd.
