Her future endeavors include establishing a leukemia survivorship program to facilitate leukemic patients in understanding their disease, to find kinship with people suffering from similar calamity, to share their own experiences and to find hope in the fact that hematological malignancies are not incurable and a well suited patient tailored treatment plan can not only improve the quality of life significantly but can also put the disease in remission.
