Hi Linda, yes, it is very possible to survive AML. I am proof. It is a struggle at times, but AML can be defeated. Now, I just pray that I stay in remission for good. Are you an AML patient? I hope all goes well for you.

Surviving AML

Hello Linda, And yes, it is possible. The most important thing to remember, is that with God, anything is possible. My younger sister is an AML survivor. She was recently hospitalized for nearly 5 months. She had a very close brush with death in June and was in a in a coma and in ICU for almost 2 1/2 months. Her will and our prayers have given her back her life. She turned 40 on October 25. She is in remission now and has just gotten the results back from her marrow test. ALL CLEAR of any cancer cells! Her road to full recovery will be a long and arduous one but I thank God every day for giving her health and life. Linda, stay positive, join a support group if at all possible, keep the faith and remember, do not pray for tasks equal to your power, but pray for power equal to your tasks. Sincerely, Rochelle

Yes you can survive AML I was Diagnosed on 2004 just before christmas, went through induction and consolidation chemo., relasped in 2006  received 2 bone marrow transplants and am in remission as of today July l5, 2007. You need to focus on what important in your life and strive for that one thing wheather it be God, family, friend or a loved one focus and follow your doctors they really do know whats going on. I was scared for a long time but with God and prayer with strength I am very happy to be moving on with my life. God Bless and I pray you will get a speedy recovery.

My father has AML and has gone 4 rounds of chemotherapy that has been unsuccessful.  He is 70 years old.  The doctors have never brought up a BMT.  Does a patient have to be in remission for this procedure to have any benefit?

it would be helpful to know what type of AML he had and what type of chemo he has recieved.  In general,  a BMT is not an option in a 70 year old.

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.

Hello, My dad who is 74 was just diagnosed three weeks ago with AML M2. He just completed round one of chemo and is home. He has blood tests tomorrow and Friday. Everything I read about this disease is that it requires many rounds of chemo, possible BMT and it is not favorable at all in older folks. Are there any success stories for older people with this disease? I just can't imagine losing my dad that sometimes I feel like I am in denial that I am refusing to believe that his fate is so bleak. So many people are praying for him that I am just holding out hope for a miraculous recovery. Any feedback regarding your dad would be great since they are so close in age.

Hi

 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

My dad was diagnosed with AML. He has had 4 treatments. He is getting out of the hospital tomorrow. We are looking into alternative treatments. Does anyone have any advise or testimonial about alternative treatments?
