A Widower Recounts the Loss of His Wife From Leukemia

At the age of 30, George Moore never anticipated that his nearly new marriage to Julia, 28, would end with her abrupt death from leukemia.

Julia had never had any health problems. In fact, she had enjoyed a healthy pregnancy that resulted in the birth of the couple's son, Jonathan, on Nov. 4, 2000.

But in May 2001, Julia complained that she felt worn out. The couple believed that she was exhausted from the demands of a new baby and being out of shape.

Not long afterward, however, Julia's body broke out in red dots. Doctors told her she had acute lymphatic leukemia - a very aggressive form of the cancer - and they immediately began chemotherapy.

Here, George, who lives in Newark, Del., with his young son, spoke with Discovery Health Online about his and Julia's very personal journey with the disease, its affect on their life together, and its aftermath.
