My grandkids maternal grandma has a recurrence of cml after chemo, full body radiation and BMT after 7.5 years. She is presently taking Gleeved. Can anyone give me any info on this disease and possibly a NEW book I can purchase for her? Thank you so much for any help

Dear Dyanna,
The best thing to do as for more info is to read books which you can get fron the American Cancer Society or y0u can do as I did and ask my Oncologist for any ideas they might have .Most doctors have ample supply of books or pamphlets you can read.Also you can go to www.webmb.com
Micheal from the chat room also has a good site to go to and read about leukemia.
I have also found that the Public Library has a good source of information there.And also talking to other who have survived Leukemia and had a setback has alot of good information also.
I have a friend who is using Gleevec Injections for much the same reason Your loved one is.
Keeping up a Positive Mental Attitude and keeping your Faith,while relying on friends and family to get you through this.
Eating a well balanced diet is also one great thing you can do to help.brocoli as well as other green veggies are really good to help keep up the body's energy level.You can also go to the Tennessee Oncology Website and find some helpfull things there to.As well as any Mayo Clinic.
If I can be of any help please dont hestitate to eamil me here at csn.
Dod Bless and Keep you and yours
