Ask Caroline, a Macmillan Nurse working with people who have Leukaemia, Myelodysplasia...
A support group for anyone affected by leukaemia to come together, share experiences...
I've only just joined this site due to being recently diagnosed with breast cancer.
However in 1989 at the age of 31 I was diagnosed with CML. I was very lucky and they managed to find me a bone marrow donor and in 1990 I had a transplant. I was treated at Leicester Royal infirmary and they looked after me very well.
I am posting this because I am now 60 and I wanted to reassure everyone that people can survive CML..
I am more than happy to help and support others if needed
Hi Spottyhorse and welcome to the Online Community but sorry to hear about your ongoing issues with cancer.
This will indeed be a great encouragement for those on the CML journey. I had NHL and two Stem Cell Transplant so do understand the journey you were on...... now Breast Cancer - as my oldest granddaughter (7) would say “that is pants granddad”
