Can anyone recommend a good Dr. at MD Anderson to treat CMML?
My Dad has been treated at the Mayo clinic for 6 months since his diagnosis and has run out of options there. It has progressed in his skin (leukemia cutis) and I guess the chemo treatments just aren't helping.
Thank you for any input you may have!

my husband was diagnosed with AML back in jan 2011, he has gone thru chemotherapy since then and also has had 5 bone marrow biopsy the last one was done 2 weeks ago and the md indicated that it was not bad, but is counts have been down for 8 weeks and with no chemptherapy being done. Dr's are baffled as to why the counts are still down and we have run out of options. He known has a blood cloth in his leg legs that requires that he has injections every day for the 6 months or the rest of his life. We are considering getting a different option at the MD Anderson in Houston tx. any ideas

I just got diagnosed last Thursday with CMML. Did you only do drugs or did you get a bone marrow transplant?

I did get a biopsy and confirmed CMML. I'm in Portland, Or and have an appt in 3 weeks with the transplant team at OHSU. My disease is new, after my routine physical in August, went back a month later to see if white count was still high and it was. I finally got the diagnosis last Thursday. Yes, please forward anything you have to johnwc98 at yahoo dot com.
