Hi, my name is Milind Kumar, I’m 17 years old, and I have acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL)
I was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia after going to a doctor for bad back pain in August 2019. I don’t let my three-year treatment plan get me down, even if it’s keeping me from getting my driver’s permit! I play baseball, basketball and tennis, and I can also say that I’m a fighter. This ordeal has given me the strength to stay positive no matter what.
Thanks to the CHEO Foundation, my family doesn’t need to worry about the financial aspect of the disease
