  • i just found that my office manager was diagnosed w/ acute leukemia. i am just starting research and would appreciate feedback from any who have had to address this in any way.trentwell i was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukiemia aged 16 in january. the good news is, its a curable disease; however the younger your age, the higher the remission, cure and survival rates. The treatment is grueling and lasts 2 years for females, 3 years for males, but the most intensive stages are usually finished within the first 12 months, with monthly chemotherapy afterwards.personally i myself had have to take a year out from my education, but things are more better now and life is back to normal in everyway!regards!
