Hello I am new on here , my partner has been diagnosed with aml 

  • Hi  and welcome to this corner of the Community although I am sorry to hear about your partners diagnosis. I am Mike and I keep an eye on our various Blood Cancer groups.

    I don’t have Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) but I was diagnosed way back in 1999 at 43 with a rare, incurable but treatable type of Low-Grade NHL then in late 2013 a more aggressive type of NHL came along with me now reaching Stage 4a so although my Blood Cancer ‘type’ is different I do appreciate the challenges of this journey rather well.

    Let’s look for group members to pick up on your post and get back to you. You can also click on the main ‘AML Group’ title and this will bring up all the group posts. Have a look at the posts and as always you can hit reply to any post and connect in with the wider group conversations.

    You may find it helpful to call the Macmillan Support Line open 8am-8pm (timings may differ across services) 7 days a week on 0808 808 00 00. This service provides cancer information, practical information, emotional support, benefits/financial guidance or just a listening ear.

    We also have our Ask an Expert section but do allow a few working days for a reply.

    For good information do check out Leukaemia Care UK who produce very good information and run various support platforms including their Buddy Scheme, they also have a Support Line on 08088 010 444

    You may also want to check to see if you have a Maggie's Centre in your area as these folks are amazing and most centres do run monthly Heamatology Support Groups most are online at the moment….. the one I attend does have a person with AML in it so worth checking.

    Always around to help more or just to chat
