Hi to every one! I am new here,I was diagnose with CML in 2001, I was two months pregnant. I delivered a healthy baby boy on April 2, 2002. My cancer Dr. tried me on Gleevec and interferon both failed. I am now needing a BMT for my only chance of a cure. I'm having it done at shands at the university of florida. I have three sister and three brothers but there all half. None of them are a match. Shands is having a difficult time in finding me a donor. Hopefully god will send one to us! I am very scared of having a BMT. Could any one please tell me about there experience. I had liver problems due to gleevec and interferon. I know taking chemo can affect my liver. I look at my husband and son and ask my self am I going to be here with them. My sister says god would not have given me a child than take me away from him. I have so many fears of having a BMT. Please reply. Thank you!
