UL Student Brittni Clements, daughter of CJ Clements from 99.9 KTDY, will address via video, a group of nurses attending a banquet at Acadiana Center for the Arts tonight presented by Service Chevrolet. This will be the first time she talks about her life before, during and after being diagnosed with cancer in 2016.
August 8, 2018 was a very good day. My daughter Brittni was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (APL) High Risk February 11, 2016 while working at Disney in Orlando, Florida. A day that my family will never forget. But through Brittni's strength and determination, August 8, 2018 was a day to celebrate.
Recently, I was just outside of New Orleans to get some much needed rest. Hold up in a hotel room alone, by my own design. After a text conversation with my daughter Brittni, she convinced me to jump in the car and drive into New Orleans to walk around the French Quarter. She thought it would be good for me to get out. After going back and forth in my head about it, I decided I would go into the Quarter to walk around and take in the sites. What happened to me that day, will forever change me.
