My sister got diagnosed with ALL about  8  weeks ago, she is 11 years old.

She has gone through  2  different chemotherapy and have been unable to achieve remission.

She got started on the 3rd set of Chemo this pass Thursday (01/24/2013), which are:

  1. Cyclophos
  2. Etoposide
  3. Clufarabine


I was told today that there is a big chance that the 3rd set of chemo has failed to get her into remission.


My question is :  Is there other options? Have we try everything?


She is 11yrs old - Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia pre. B – She has a fungal infection name “Aspergillus terreus”.


Thank You for your reply and help...
