Tales of Adventure

Mickey Martinez
Diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) at age 15

Transformation is a recurring theme in Mickey Martinez’s journey from cancer patient to college student. In October of 2006, at age 15, he was diagnosed with ALL and began several years of treatment at Texas Children’s Cancer Center. More
