It’s been eight months since our last episode of Operation Adventure. Wonder where we’ve been? Well on August 10th, 2018 our very own Michael Tolbert was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Because of this we had to put the travel series on the back burner to fight this vicious illness. Now it’s time to present to you all the series premiere of Diagnosis: The Series, which chronicles this battle.
Original Post via Diagnosis: The Series
Last year, Michael was on top of his game in the South Carolina Film Community. He had just wrapped his third feature film, several shorts, started a vlog series and had begun planning to head off to Los Angeles. Then weird things began happening; from being constantly tired to uncontrollable body aches. Instead of listening to doctors say, “Oh you’re fine… This is caused by a little dehydration.” He decided to pursue the issues at hand till I got my diagnosis. At the age of 29, Michael was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
Tonight, we’re releasing Episode 1 titled “How I Discovered I had Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia” where he discusses the things that led up to his diagnosis.
Note: This episode was filmed over the course of two days. The first day was the night before my diagnosis. The second day was the day that I received the news. – Michael Tolbert
