While this fund has been fully designed and we are ready to provide needed support to these patient communities, this fund is not yet able to accept applications for assistance as we are still working to secure charitable donations that will allow us to open it.

About Acute Myeloid Leukemia
Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) is a malignant disease of the bone marrow in which the DNA of a developing stem cell in the bone marrow is damaged. The damaged cell becomes a leukemic cell and multiplies into leukemic blasts, which block the production of normal cells. AML is defined by myeloblasts making up greater than 20% of the leukocytes in the peripheral blood.
AML is the most common acute leukemia in adults, accounting for approximately 80% of new acute cases, and is most common in adults older than 65. AML is the second most common form of leukemia in children during the first two years of life and during the teenage years. Major risk factors include age, having a previous diagnosis of myelodysplastic syndrome or myeloproliferative disorders, which have a risk of conversion to AML. Acute myelogenous leukemia is also known as acute myeloid leukemia, acute myeloblastic leukemia, acute granulocytic leukemia and acute nonlymphocytic leukemia.”
