“My mom has leukemia. And it’s not something that goes away. So, if she doesn’t stay with her pills it can come back. It hasn’t and she’s as healthy as a normal person now, which is amazing, but when she first got it I was a little kid. I didn’t know anything about it, I just remember hearing something from school. Someone had read a story where there was a girl who had leukemia. She was in the hospital and she had made paper cranes out of origami. I think making one thousand of them was a wish she had, but I had heard that at the end of the story the girl died. As soon as we heard that my mom had leukemia, I of course freaked out. This was Christmas time so [I was ] like ‘My mom cannot die at Christmas, this is not okay.’ And, it was just a very stressful time in my life. She’s gotten much better, though. And I’m thankful she’s still with us.”
