On the surface, 17-year old Courtney Alvis looks like your everyday teenager. She's Two days shy of her senior prom and testing a new do at the salon. But getting to this point hasn't been easy, "I have heard of leukemia but I wanted to make sure that was cancer. So I was like are you telling me I have cancer and he was like it could be cancer," she said.

And it was. At just 16-years old and a junior at Hueytown High School, Courtney's life drastically changed.

"I couldn't drive. I couldn't go to school or even go to the mall or out to eat because of germs."....
