Hi my name is Amanda and in November of 2001 I was diagnosed with AML and I've been in the hospital ever since. I'm currently on chemo and looking forward to getting a bone marrow transplant soon. I'm just looking for someone to talk to that I can relate with. My e-mail address is Tw0cute4yew@aol.com

    My son was diagnosed with AML in 1995 at 7 years old. He started chemo 2/96 and was in remission the following May. About a month later he had a bone marrow transplant from his mom who mathed 5 out of 6. He's now 14 and considered cured. It's been a long tough road but he is alive and enjoys life.Keep up your hope and faith there are miracles!

    you are doing fine now.
