Is there a tendency of Luekemia to be genetic. Are there any results of statistics on chances of getting Lukemia to grand childrens ? Essentially, since Leukemia is reason of genetic modification it is likely that it would be passed on to the next generation. Your comments will be helpful

my dad who is 80 years old has acute myeloid leukemia, with a couple of weeks to a couple of months to live. What should we expect from this cancer within that time, and what kind of effects will it have on him as for as pain,or anything else that you can help me with.

This information was very useful and It is much appreciated. I have Leukemia, and my doctors are actually looking for a bone marrow donor. It's really a struggle, and no one really knows how hard It Is. It's a harsh disease, but all you can do is keep faith. That's all I want to do. Nutrition therapy is alright. I had chemotherapy, but It didn't do much. The cancer cells are spreading fast, so we need a donor quick. Everything will be fine, It's all apart of God's plan. But thank you :)
