The new meds they have for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) have indeed been showing excellent results. My wife's sister had a different style of leukemia (acute, or AML) and she got to know several other leukemia patients while she was being treated. My wife got to know them, also. While wife's sister did not make it, the three girls with CML that took the new meds are still around. Wife checks in with them every so often. That's been 2 years.
