    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    As I recall, I was 13, back in 1964. They told me years later that I had leukemia, as they did not want to cause emotions to cause a negative impact on the VAMP treatment (I was one of the first to receive the combination of drugs invented by Dana Farber). The treatments were intolerable. I will not get into it, right now as I need a better time to do this. Even though it happened in 1964, 1965, 1966, it is still fresh in my mind.
