I have recently been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. This is a very aggressive blood cancer that left untreated will be fatal in a short time. I met with a doctor at Stanford on Wednesday and discussed the treatment. Monday I will be checking in to Stanford Hospital for chemotherapy and an extended stay of approximately 5 weeks. There is a chance that I might not survive the chemo process at Stanford. Of course I am hoping for nothing but the best outcome. This is the beginning, I will continue next week to post my progress.
