    Oh No

    The best man at our wedding was just diagnosed with AML - he is 43, a life-long athlete, and has 3 little kids. We don't yet know what variation of AML. We are sad and scared. Sadly, I am familiar with AML as my dad died of AML in 2007 (at age 69 after 13 months). I am looking for more information about AML in "middle age". I read that in middle age the survival rates are about 33%. Also, any suggestions for doctors/hospitals in NYC (Manhattan). Thanks in advance. Foxfire
