Unfortunately there are no medications or surgery that can cure this Cancer, however I would recommend Chemotherapy or a stem cell transplant. We will run an MRI to see where the cancer is effecting Kierstin.
How could I have prevented this?
There isn't a sure way to prevent luekemia, Sometimes it cant result from previous chemo or radiation to cure a past cancer, but in your case it is just genetics.
I thought my little girl wasn't the type to get cancer..
Well actually ma'am, ANYONE can be diagnosed with leukemia. Leukemia is the most common cancer in children and teens. Almost 1 out of 3 cancers.
Okay I guess I am ready to do all these tests and treatments.
Well, Kierstin if you're ready lets go ahead and get you into Chemo treatment right away and see if it works
You should be back to normal soon and I am informed to tell you that you Have a low risk MDS
What is MDS?
