Women who don't have BRCA mutations could have other high-risk genes that affect treatment choices

My wife is 35 and we have 2 children (10 & 5). On may 6th we were told she had aml. Chemo started may 9th and went thru the 16. Today is the 29th and her counts are back up and she is getting a bone marrow test today. The doctor feels certain that the leukemia cells are gone and she will go home this week. Consolidation treatments are planned a week or so after that. I was just curious if anyone has experience on what the future holds. Mayo clinic says genetics show 70% remission chance. With that they say no bone marrow transplant. We live in the southeast, not far from Birmingham or Vanderbilt. Would those places be good options? Anyway just thought I'd post this and see what happens. Email

Feb 2012 (51 yrs. old) I was given a diagnosis AML. Induction and 4 consolidations and a year later and I'm still in remission, next bloodwork will be in August. My doc told me my age was a big plus in recovery...I HOPE SO!
