Last year, Michael, was on top of his game in the South Carolina Film Community. He had just wrapped his third feature film, several shorts, started a vlog series and had began planning to head off to Los Angeles. Then weird things began happening. From being constantly tired to uncontrollable body aches. Instead of listening to doctors tell say, “Oh you’re fine… This is caused by a little dehydration.” He decided to pursue the issues at hand till I got my diagnosis. At the age of 29, Michael was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
Tonight we’re releasing Episode 1 titled “How I Discovered I had Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia” where he discusses the things that led up to his diagnosis.
Note: This episode was filmed over the course of two days. The first day was the night before my diagnosis. The second day was the day that I received the news. – Michael Tolbert
