Dorothy Monk is my former neighbor from Flint, MI. She was diagnosed with Leukemia about two years ago after a fall. They discovered her Leukemia during a pre-op blood test. She is on medication that has only been available to the public about 5 years, that keeps her in remission, other wise she would be very sick.
