My name is Justin Ozuna. In January of 2006, I was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia. I was twenty four years old. In November 2009, I was informed that I had a t315i mutation and that my oral chemotherapy was no longer effective at treating my disease.
This blog became my outlet. I wrote about my experiences; the ups, the downs, the optimism, and the hope as I began the process of two clinical trials and waited in anticipation for a possible bone marrow transplant.
I didn’t intend for this to be a cancer blog, but it kind of ended up that way. I like writing about a lot of other things as well, but as the tides of life come and go, so will my postings about cancer and a purpose that is being designed because of it. I hope you enjoy your stay, however brief.
