Hello Everyone! My name is Mariyah Ridley & I’m a 21 year old smart, intelligent, kind, caring, spontaneous young woman.
Let’s get into why your all reading this. As some of you may know I’ve been battling CML for a little over a year now. For those of you new to my story, CML stands for Chronic Myeloid Leukemia. It is a cancer within my blood and has pretty much taken over my life this past year.
I was diagnosed August of 2018 after accidentally eating an expired coffee cake which led to me going to see a doctor and getting blood work done. If it wasn’t for me eating that coffee cake, I would have never known what my body was going through & would have eventually resulted in me being very ill & passing.
