Why did I choose this name and logo?

Seems a bit strange to use the word lucky when talking about leukemia, or any type of cancer for that matter. 

So why did I choose this name and logo?

When I was first diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) I was being booked in a for a few more tests when the nurse said to me, "Well if this is the type of cancer you have, you are lucky, it's just like having diabetes". Now, I am sure her intentions were good, but personally, it did not come across very well and I think that way of thinking within the medical field needs to change! 

I'll have more to say about this in future posts!

As for the logo, my inspiration came from a description I found online about the symbolism of the hummingbird. Reading it really made sense. That was also the inspiration for a tattoo I decided to get on my wrist which closely resembles my logo.
