(Please share this page if you know someone newly diagnosed with Leukemia)
If you’re at this page, I’m sorry to hear about your new, very unwelcome diagnosis. I received my leukemia diagnosis (AML with Extramedulary Disease) on April 3rd, 2017. Then I had a bone marrow treatment on August 15, 2017, from an unrelated donor. It wasn’t easy. But as of August 2021, I am still here today.
The document below is a list of 70+ specific and practical tips that can make a substantive difference to both the person who was diagnosed, and their families. (It does not include medical advice, nor does it include “alternative” therapies – I’m not qualified in these areas.)
Practical Leukemia Tipsheet for the newly diagnosed (7 easy-reading pages)
After you go through the document, and if you think it would be helpful, I would be happy to answer any questions. You can book a direct “zoom” meeting with me by going to www.RandallCraig.net/30. (As my time is constrained, family is welcome to listen in for support, but I would prefer to speak directly to the person who was diagnosed.)
