Last year, Michael, was on top of his game in the South Carolina Film Community. He had just wrapped his 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 say, “Oh you’re fine… This is caused by a little dehydration.” He decided to pursue the issues at hand till I got my diagnosis. At the age of 29, Michael was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
Tonight, we’re releasing Episode 1 titled “How I Discovered I had Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia” where he 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
