How do lifestyle factors and exposure to environmental substances affect our cancer risk?

Hello, just to share
I was diagnosed with acute leukaemia myeloblasts ALM on May 6th 2011 and according to the doctor I was somewhat too late for a conventual treatment, so they proposed me to join a research programme. I could go home for two days to sort out my family affairs and on May 9th 2011 they closed the door of the sterile room and the treatment which was registered in France as LAMSA-MAINTENANCE REV-5 AZA started. The research programme started in March 2011 and will finish in September 2013, so no official results are known yet. The programme comprehends 95 patients of 65 years or older and is spread over some 30 hospitals in France. The programme consists of a heavy 30 days hospital treatment of chimio 24/24 and a 12 months follow up with VIDAZA under the skin injections and REVLIMID pills. In June 2012 I had my last treatment and stopped all medication. Last consultation at the hospital was on July the 23rd and all test results were positive. Next consultation is planned for the end of October and once per month I will have a blood test. Between these lines you should read that I have sincerely suffered muscle pains and that I did not support well the treatment with Vidaza.

Did you or your loved one seek a second opinion before starting cancer treatment?
No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
