Hi my name is Shoaib and I have AML- M4. Did a BMT one and a half years ago and now it seems I have relapsed with 50% blast cells in my blood.

My doctors, here in Pakistan ,have thiugh decided not to treat me and put me on palliative care. As per them they canot do much as per their protocols.

Trying to get out of here and fine some options, but just so expensive in US .... how can I enroll myself in a clinical trail in US? Is there also any finalcial funding which I can have .

Cheers to all!!

They are the best hospitals that i know but i am not sure what they can do for you. They might be able to help you out or at least tell you who can help you.
