Diet Saves Their Lives vol. 14 part II

 

When some of my friends and family see this, there’s a good chance they’ll roll their eyes thinking, “There she goes again… on and on and on… about the amazing Christina Pirello.  Haven’t I been subjected to enough of this? Now she even found videos!”.

Christina states in the first video that she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL). Although I was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL), she is the one person I found who had survived more than 10 years and recovered from any type of leukemia. What is the difference between acute and chronic leukemia?

“The different types of leukemia are categorized as either acute or chronic. In acute leukemia, the abnormal blood cells are blasts that remain very immature and cannot carry out their normal functions. With acute leukemia, the number of blasts increases rapidly, and the disease gets worse quickly. In chronic leukemia cases, some blast cells are present, but in general, these cells are more mature and can carry out some of their normal functions. Also, the number of blasts increases less rapidly than in acute leukemia. As a result, chronic leukemia gets worse gradually.”
