Hi Lindy, my name is Bernice and I was DX with AML in december of 2004, the doctors say it is important to be in remission prior to a bone marrow transplant you may want to talk with the doctors about this. I myself was in remission prior to my transplant and am coming up on a yr. out from my transplant, I pray all goes will for your dad god bless.

You can survive AML i was diagnose Nov 1 2004 and had BMT on June 11 2005 and had great support from family, Girlfriend & daugther and friends you need to think about the future and where you want to be. I dreamt about watching my son's future grow and getting married and having a great family life. YOU CAN SURVIVE the meds were hard you go thru so much nobody could understand .Outside you are good but inside you need to rebuild yourself this was the hard part for each person i am sure it is different for everybody .Due to the effects of the meds it tooks it toll on me and had a great effect on my personal relatesonship this was hard going thru the next year without her support but i had to find myself it is now 3 years since being diagnose with Aml and it feels like i came out of a coma. I feel like i have my heart,mind and soul back and life is good and the future lies ahead with many new challenge's to face but be strong trust in God and sometimes no matter how hard you need to fight the battle no matter and hope Poeple around understand because it is just as hard for them seeing you not your self and hope they understand truly how much this effected the changes in you and that one day you will back to your own self Be stong TONY New York
