Re: [MOL] Leukemia experiences?

Hi Steve,
Don't stop there with your father, my hubby has sclc and a very bad heart and
he can still have more Chemo when needed, and he'll be 74.  Go and get a
secornd opinion.  As long as there is still life there is a reason to fight.
Gosd helps those that help themselves.  I've had a few friends that have been
told by a Doctor in a large cancer clinic that they could do no more, they
went to a small clinic in another town and one and two years later they are
still alive and doing very well and also in the same age group.  There is no
need to give up and go lay down and die, and you tell your father that I said
so.  Hang in there with him and help him fight.
Love, Hugs & Prayers to you and yours,
Nanc (:-)

 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.
