I need help. My father (55 years) is suffering from AML from 2 years now. He was diagnosed in April 2007.He was advised BMT transplant but he opted out for it because of high risk factors. His cancer relpased 1st time in Jan last year and he was given a chemotherapy again. He was cancer free till November 2009 and was on herbal medicines and was controlling his diet. His cancer relapsed 2nd time now last year in December 2009. He has been in and out of hospital since then. He platellets count has gone down since then and the blast is also very high. He is on life support now and has developed cough due to infection. The doctors cannot do another chemo since he is too old for it. Is there any medicine to reduce the blast or any other cure? pls help......
