..Are there any other 'Pinkles' children out there?  Dr Pinkel was the 'father of chemotherapy ' during the 1960s who introduced the idea of using more than one drug at a time to treat childhood leukaemia. The success rates rocketed. 

I was treated in 1973 for A.L.L. (type undetermined) shortly after the 1st trials (95th peoson)  with pinkles chemo.  was wondering if there are any other survivers of around that era.?

  • Hi

    I am not a Pinkles child but I did have ALL in 2012 so would have benefited from all the research that has gone on since the 1970's..

    It may be worth trying a post in the ALL forum HERE  to see if you get any responses. Great that you are still doing well!
