So What Happened, Exactly

This is the first installment of a blog by Brandi Chase called Lymphoblaster. It is an online chronicle through Leukemia. Living in Australia with her husband, film composer Randin Graves, Brandi, grieving the loss of her father 2 months prior, began to feel ill. On a trip home to Utah in the United States to visit family, she went to a hospital to see if she might be anemic. She learned instead that she had cancer. Brandi was admitted the same day. In this video to her family and friends, she talks about how it all began. Sometimes tragic, but always life-affirming, Brandi’s shares candidly her experiences. Filled with a sense of grace and humor throughout, she inspires. You can find new installments here each week.
