Faustina, Acute Myeloblastic Leukaemia patient
Faustina is 64 years old and lives in Hospitalet de Llobregat (Barcelona). On the 3rd of August 2009, without suffering any symptoms and feeling completely fine, she went into hospital for routine tests. However the results revealed a cruel diagnosis: Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. It was out of the blue.
Faustina is a mother with a family. She has 3 children and 2 grandchildren, one is 7 and the other is 3. She is positive but in these worrying times she says "I want to go home to get on with things because my husband is used to me being there and now he is organizing everything alone".
Faustina is still in the first stages of her battle and is "only" in her 2nd chemo session. With the first she suffered a lot but now she is much better.
