Please help. I am in New Zealand and my mother has been diagnosed with AML (subtype acute monocytic)
The specialist said she has an average prognosis. She is 62 and healthy.
They have told her she only has a 30% chance of survival, but I can't accept that!!!
Is there more hope than that? Can we do more? She is undergoing her first round of chemo: DAUNORUBICIN 50mg/m2 and CYTARABINE 100mg/m2.
Desperate, as she is my world.
What can give us more hope? as the specialists are just talking statistics and freaking us out.
