IamA 15 year old survivor of quite literally the worst case of T-cell lymphoma (cancer) that you could possibly imagine. AMA!
My short bio: My name is Alex Harte. I am 15 years old and several months ago I was diagnosed with cancer. In addition to this, I nearly experienced heart and lung failure do to a buildup of cancerous fluid around my heart and lungs and a severe case of double pneumonia all at once. And that was just the first day. Everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) that could have gone wrong in my treatment pretty much did go wrong. For example, I was sent to anaphylactic shock after being given a chemo drug that I was apparently allergic to. So, instead of taking that drug through IV, I had to endure 2 large needles being stabbed into my leg muscles on 25 separate occasions, with each needle costing more than $14,000 apiece. Do the math. Basically, this cancer could not have tried harder to kill me, but I was able to come out on top. I take pride in that. So please, Ask Me Anything. Note: I will check back every hour or so to see new questions, if and when they arise, so you SHOULD have an answer within an hour of you asking a question. NO guarantees, though. ;)
^ This is me getting a the super kick-ass gaming computer from the Make-a-Wish Foundation a few months after my diagnosis!

EDIT: Wow, thanks for all the questions! I'm taking a break now but I will check back at around 7 PM PST and see what else you ask! Stay cool.
EDIT #2: I mentioned that I play TF2. Here is a short montage of Soldier gameplay that I made a while ago! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJk5qQPg0LE
EDIT #3: Why are some of my responses in negative numbers? Am I doing something wrong?
EDIT #4: Thank you to everyone who supported me and downvoted that "harveytent" guy. It's nice to know that I have support. :D
