I am looking for a survivor who has the FLT3 gene mutation.  My friend has been diagnosed with this condition and asked me to locate a survivor who can give him hope.

Hi.  I don't come to this site very often but just so happened to come across your post today.  I had the FLT3 mutation and am still in remission 30 months post transplant.  It's a tough complication, the trick is to keep the leukemia from coming back so you can go to transplant in a solid remission.  I didn't have any inhibitors but there are some very effective drugs that suppress the FLT3.  A stem cell transplant is almost always recommended.  Good luck.

My name is Megan and I am a survivor of AML with the FLT3 mutation! I have been through A LOT but have been cancer-free for over a year now :) I'm 19 years old if that makes any difference...

My 18yr old son is currently battling Leukemia. His diagnosis is AML M2 with FLT3-ITD-TKD (yes, he has TWO FLT3 mutations) and NPM1 with normal cytogenetics. He has a 90% chance of relapse with chemo alone, and he has been referred to another hospital for an allogenic transplant. Don't know yet it if it will be BMT or SCT. He is currently in remission after induction and has had his first round of consolidation. So far, chemo hasn't been too bad. I feel like I'm constantly waiting for the shoe to drop!!
