        I hope someone has an answer for you, you know I don't. I hit another hurdle Tuesday, back home and feeling fine now. Nurses loved my attitude, I had just had a heart attack. A possitive attitude toward life will continue to clear the hurdles ahead! I hope you find the answers you are looking for!  Dave

              Hi, in early summer 2011, at age 55 I was diagnosed with polycythemia vera. A couple monts later, I was diagnosed with rectal cancer.

                You'll make it! Just keep a positive attitude and listen to your body. Sounds like it already tells you to get your count's checked! I was diagnosed at 55 in 2011, a few months later, diagnosed with Colo-rectal cancer. I don't know the connection with leukemia, but I have an old friend who is still around after leukemia in the mid 90's, Marty Liquori. He's pushing 70 now. Stay strong, best of luck!

                    Fill me in on Turkey Tail? My Dad will be 85 in March, getting tested for cancer ( lung) to see if it is spreading. Just checked and Amazon has 500mg Turkey Tail mushroom pills, we talking about the same thing? Thanks,    Dave
