Hi, Anon, and thank you so much for writing.

Please try not to be so very scared right now. And your aunt should NOT be giving up hope! Leukemia is treatable. The most important thing for your aunt to do right now is to get her bone marrow biopsy results and find out what kind of leukemia she has, and what the doctors recommend for treatment.

Here's a great website that may help you when you have specific questions:

One of our guides, Pat Elliot, has leukemia herself, and is a fabulous resource. I'll make sure she sees your question. As soon as you know what kind of leukemia your mom has and what treatment is recommended, please come back and let us know, OK?
