What Are The Odds

No seriously, what are the odds that a married couple would develop the same type of leukemia 2 years apart from each other.

Well that is what happened. On January 18, 2018 my husband was diagnosed with acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and on May 13, 2020 I was also diagnosed with acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He was 27 at the time and I just turned 28. Not exactly in the at risk she groups.

To make things crazier and even more bizarre, as I was getting sick and getting diagnosed and admitted, my husband was getting discharged from his second stem cell transplant to hopefully cure his leukemia. We were on the same ward for 24 hours together. As weird as that is I’m glad I got to see him before he left as it gave me some of the strength I know I’m going to need to fight this battle ahead of me.

So, if anyone out there is a statistician, or is simply a need and bored during quarantine, we would love to know the odds of something like this happening!
