My husband was recently diagnosed with ALL Ph+ and is taking 600mg of Gleevec daily. He is currently in remission. His siblings are being tested now to see if one of them could become a donor for a bone marrow transplant. He is 69 years old and in very good health.
Has anyone been in this particular cir***stance? How long have you been on Gleevec and how long have you been in remission.
Because this is such a rare type of cancer, we have been unable to find financial support or statistical support of the length of time a person could be in remisson for this type of cancer. We have found many sites re: CML but not ALL.
