[MOL] Leukemia experiences?



Hi,

My father has undergone two rounds of chemo for treatment of leukemia
over the last trhee months.  The Dr. has now said that his body has not
responded well to the treatment and given his age (71) would not be able
to tolerate any additional chemo.  It's currently in 85% remission.  He
has been sent home and will be taking other types of medication.
Needless to say the outlook doesn't  seem to good.  Anyone have any
words of wisdom or recommendations for other types of treatment?

Thanks in advance.
