So I thought I better put one of these in here so you don’t have to trawl through other posts to find out exactly what this blog is about.
My name is Florence Kleiner and I am currently 18 years old (as of 5th October 2013). On 8th August 2014 I was diagnosed with AML Leukaemia and I am now undergoing chemotherapy to kill the cancer and cure me so I’m ready to start really living my life once more.
I’ve had to defer my place at uni for a year (what a bummer?!) but look forward to attending the University of York in September 2015 with the promise of completing a degree in Undergraduate Film and Television Production. And I’m not messing around right now. I want it all. I want the film career to die for, and with some hard work and ingenuity on my part, I’m sure as hell going to get it.
So, yeah, I wouldn’t say that I’m all that ambitious…
This blog exists for me to document my journey with Leukaemia through writing, ugly selfies and outrageous videos of me dancing in my hospital room, meagrely trying to burn off the calories I’ve obtained from eating ice cream whenever I want it – (it’s a serious problem).
I’m not going to put any contact details here for fear of random internet people telling my survival rates that I REALLY DO NOT WANT TO KNOW. So if you know me contact me through facebook and stuff, and if you don’t then you might be able to leave comments somewhere…but please keep them considerate and clean, I beg you.
Now that I’ve put you in your place, please enjoy this rather wonderful photo of my face. My sister says I look like a potato in it (a very cute and edible potato I should think).
