Patients & Carers
Information on acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and the available support and resources.
What is AML?
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a rare aggressive cancer of the blood and bone marrow. It is the most common form of acute leukemia in adults.
Advances in AML research have shown that AML is not a single disease but rather a disease of many types.
The aim of AML treatment is to help control the abnormal leukemia cells and restore a balance of healthy blood cells in the bone marrow.
Carers play a central role in a patient’s journey. Caring can mean a variety of things and in some cases this could be providing round-the-clock care.
