Last year I was on top of his game in the South Carolina Film Community. I had just wrapped my third feature film, several shorts, started a vlog series and had begun planning to head off to Los Angeles. Then weird things began happening; from being constantly tired to uncontrollable body aches. Instead of listening to doctors tell me, “Oh you’re fine… This is caused by a little dehydration.” I decided to pursue the issues at hand till I got my diagnosis. At the age of 29, I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
In Episode 1 titled “How I Discovered I had Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia”, I discusses the things that led up to his diagnosis.
Note: This episode was filmed over the course of two days. The first day was the night before my diagnosis. The second day was the day that I received the news. – Michael Tolbert
