I never expected my friend to call me and tell me he had cancer. I was very sudden and there were no signs leading up to it. He was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia. Because they were able to catch the cancer early enough, it became a more treatable form. After about a year and a half, the cancer has gone into remission. He's become much healthier and happier person since the announcement that he was in remission.
