Faces of Leukemia - my new book project!

I had intended my last posting, entitled Home, to be my final post on this blog.

I would however like to tell you about my latest project, a book to be entitled Faces of Leukemia, portraits and contributions by survivors of leukemia and other blood cancers  - here is a link to 12 sample pages: - it is a large file (over 25MB), it may take time to load, and you need to wait for the whole file to load before you can go from page to page – you should be able to view 12 pages.

Faces of Leukemia will be a book about hope and survival. It will feature 40-50 leukemia (or blood cancer) survivors, and the doctors, nurses and researchers involved on the front lines of the battle against this terrible disease - I am taking the photographs with a friend of mine who is also a survivor. If you would like to see other photos I have taken for my book (which I hope will be complete in about a year), see

I am producing Faces of Leukemia to raise awareness of the life saving work being done in the battle against leukemia and other blood cancers, to assist in our fund-raising efforts for the Fund for Education and Research into Blood Cancers (which I helped to form after my recovery 5 years ago from acute leukemia), and perhaps most importantly, to give hope to, and inspire patients who are struggling to survive, and their families.

I believe Faces of Leukemia will be a real game changer for patients and their families in a time of great need. I know what it is like to receive such a grim diagnosis, and how much examples of survival, and return to normal and healthy life, can inspire, and support the will to fight hard to live.

Let me know if you know someone who might be interested in apprearing in my book, or if you would like  contribute to the Fund for Education and Research into Blood Cancers, I would be pleased to provide you with the coordinates for a donation - you can email me at

Thanks, together we can beat leukemia.

    Glorious be unto Dr. Ukaka the great man and ever, my name is Sarah from Taxes city usa. since 1 and a half year I have witness what is called heart broken. my boyfriend that promised me marriage failed me and impregnate me and leave,he dump me,he stop calling" he stop picking my calls,and he no longer respond to me. I have be looking for solution,I fall into the hands of fake spell caster,they rough me off and took my money without help.I have cried,I have weep"and tears runs out of eyes. The silentness in my heart brought me to the deepest path of failure that I lost my job. Crying all day,because of my life was lonely. So thanks to Ukaka that came into my life and brought me the greatest joy that was lost. I saw his mail while browsing and I contact and tell him what I am passing through with no doubt because what saw about him,was enough to believe. And I was given words of solution on what to do. I can't really help thinking about it I have tried to see what I can do, I manage to provide him some materials and he help me with the rest,after casting the spell, 12hrs later he came with rose on his hand and I was even about going out,i saw him in front of my door when he sees me he knee and said he is dying I should forgive him and accept him back he was crying,I can't wait to let him finish I quickly crab him and kiss him, just then" he said he is restless without me, just as the prophet has said he will be. He brought out a ring and put it on my hand. Our wedding day was scheduled,1week after we got married. today makes it 2weeks and we are living happily I don't know how to praise him enough, he has done me a thing I can never forget. And I can't really share to myself alone, I want y'all to help me praise him because if it is wasn't for him I already plan of committing suicide. But right now I am now so happy more than I was before. And you out there crying for help you've already got one,Ukaka is the man that you need in all rampart. contact his address if you need his service, also contact him on his web site:
