Acute Myeloid Leukemia


Leukemia is cancer of the white blood cells. White blood cells help your body fight infection.

Also called: Acute myelogenous leukemia, AML, ANLL Leukemia is cancer of the white blood cells. White blood cells help your body fight infection. Your blood cells form in your bone marrow. In leukemia, however, the bone marrow produces abnormal white blood cells. These cells crowd out the healthy blood cells, making it hard for blood to do its work. In acute myeloid leukemia (AML), there are too many of a specific type of white blood cell called a myeloblast. AML is the most common type of acute leukemia in adults. This type of cancer usually gets worse quickly if it is not treated. Possible risk factors include smoking, previous chemotherapy treatment, and exposure to radiation. Symptoms of AML include:

• Fever
• Shortness of breath
• Easy bruising or bleeding
• Bleeding under the skin
• Weakness or feeling tired
• Weight loss or loss of appetite
Tests that examine the blood and bone marrow diagnose AML. Treatments include chemotherapy, other drugs, radiation therapy, stem cell transplants, and targeted immune therapy. Once the leukemia is in remission, you need additional treatment to make sure that it does not come back.

    My son who is 2years 4months now was diagnosed with AML last year when he was 1year 4months. Its been a year and we are back to square one and drs are saying that there is no hope. We have gone through a lot in this last one year. He went through one high dose chemo followed with 3 Ara C chemos. During this period he went on ventilator then after he came out he got bad GI issues and lost around 25% of his weight. We went back home this January 2017 with a ray of hope that our bad phase is over. But we were shattered to knw in march 18 that he has relapsed and dra told us tht we have to go through bone marrow transplant. We found an unrelated donor with 9/10 match. Thankfully the transplant was done with not major issues he just had mouth sores. Finally we thought now maybe our bad days our gone and started thinking tht all will go well and we will forget all this like a bad dream. But little did we know what was coming, he was getting his weekly test done and on 28august2018 his disease came back. Now drs are saying thts his disease is coming back so early and they think tht another round of chemo will not help. Our life is shattered completely, can’t see our son going through this pain. Drs are saying there’s no option left. Please help us.
