My nephew was just diagnosed with ALL and he's only 7 months. I am looking for families who have gone through this. If you or someone you know has a young child, toddler or infant that has survived leukimia, please contact me.
Thanks!

What can I do next?

C., My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. I know what you are feeling. My niece was diagnosed with ALL when she was 8 years old. She went through chemo (twice) and radition treatments. It was the worst thing ever for our family at that time. She lost her hair twice and a lot of kids at school made fun of her. Also during this time my nephew got the chicken pox and my niece almost died from that because she was undergoing the chemo and had nothing to fight the chicken pox. I am here to say that she then went into remission and is doing fine now at the age of 26 with two beautiful children. God bless you and may your family have the blessing that mine did.

An aunt of mine went through this experience with her granddaughter (she was also 7 months when diagnosed). I am glad to say that everything worked out well and the little girl is now going to start school. My aunt wrote a beautiful book about the 3-year struggle, but unfortunately it is in Spanish. (http://www.emol.com/noticias/magazine/detalle/detallenoti...) I'll be happy to translate some answers if there are any specific questions you might have.
