I am on this site tyring to find out some information for my friend who is about to start her 4th series of treatment. She had chemo and radio the first time, chemo and a stem cell transplant (her own spem cells) the second, chemo the third and the disease came back within 4 months of the last chemo. Her doctors here in N Ireland and England are starting her on chemo again next week and she will have it every 4 weeks for five days for a period of six months then they plan to do a (MUD) graft to host transplant which they say has a 1 in 3 chance of working. If it doesn't work it will either kill her or give her such bad side effects that she will have no quality of life. Has anyone out there ever had this host transplant or do you know of any other treatments which may be offered in the USA or elsewhere. She has been fighting this disease since she was 19 and she is only 30 now and is a single mum with a 13 year old boy. Please please please if you can help me please do I would really appreciate it. Hopefully yours.
