Story of an eight year old's struggle with leukemia and treatments with chemotherapy.
Katy's Story of Survival My life was dramatically changed one week before my eighth birthday when I became ill with flu-like symptoms and was diagnosed with type ALL Leukemia. This is my story from that moment on.
My birthday invitations had been sent out when I became sick. I was ill for several days and when I developed nose bleeds and wasn't feeling better my parents took me to the emergency room. There they gave my parents the shocking news of my Leukemia. I was soon moved to
Childrens hospital in Seattle where I underwent intense treatment to move my cancer into remission. It is critical to achieve this remission within the first thirty days. My parents stayed at the hospital with me, sleeping next to my bed or on a cot in the hall. We were all in shock for those first weeks, our lives, within days, turned upside down.
I was first taken to surgery and a Port-A-Cath was placed into
a large vessel near my heart. This reservoir is punctured by a
needle. Blood can then be drawn and medications given through
a tube. For the next two years and six months these treatments were

Feline leukemia virus infection was, until recently, the most common fatal disease of cats. Because we can now protect cats with a leukemia virus vaccine, we are seeing fewer cases of the disease. However, it still remains a major cause of death in cats.
"Leukemia" means cancer of the white blood cells. This was the first disease associated with the feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and, thus, the source of its name. We often use the term "leukemia" rather loosely to include all of the diseases associated with the virus, even though most are not cancers of the blood. This virus causes many other fatal diseases, in addition to leukemia.
What diseases are caused by the FeLV?
There are three major disease categories associated with the FeLV:
1. The Leukemias are cancers of the white blood cells. 2. Lymphosarcoma is a cancer which begins in lymphoid tissue, such as a lymph node. Almost any tissue may be affected; organs commonly involved include lymph nodes, intestinal tract, kidneys, liver, spinal cord, brain, bone marrow and blood. 3. The Non-Cancerous Diseases include a variety of somewhat unrelated diseases. Anemia, abortion, arthritis, and immune suppression are examples. When the immune system is suppressed, the cat becomes susceptible to many diseases it would ordinarily resist and mild diseases, such as respiratory infections, may become fatal.

Aims and Scope: Leukemia and Lymphoma
is an international journal that brings together clinical and laboratory data on lymphomas, leukemias and allied disorders including myeloma and myelodysplastic syndromes. Leukemia and Lymphoma publishes full-length papers, communications and reviews on clinical and therapeutic practice, laboratory diagnosis, pathology, cytology, ultrastructure, cytogenetics and cellular and molecular immunology; the journal aims at a strong clinical-pathologic correlation. Interesting or unusual case reports of importance are also included. In addition, an update is provided on the basic issues and advances in molecular genetics as applied to this field. The journal will provide an important reference source for physicians and scientists who deal essentially with the clinical and laboratory diagnosis, clinical care and therapy of patients with these disorders.

    Feline Leukemia Virus
    by Susan Little, DVM, Diplomate ABVP (Feline) Feline leukemia virus (FeLV) is a retrovirus, a family of viruses which has many members that infect cats and cause disease and death in cats around the world. Another well-known feline retrovirus is the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). FeLV and FIV can be found together in the same cat. The prevalence of FeLV in single-cat households is about 3% and can be as high as 11% in stray cat populations. In large multi-cat households and in households where cats roam freely outdoors, the prevalence can reach as high as 70%. Cats roaming in urban areas are more likely to be exposed to FeLV (40%) than cats roaming in rural areas (6%). FeLV has been studied for over 30 years, both for its relevance to the cat population and because it serves as an animal model for some human diseases. Research has established key characteristics of FeLV: it is contagious, it directly causes both fatal cancerous and non-cancerous diseases, it can lie dormant in the bone marrow for a long time, and it can be protected against by vaccination. FeLV is not transmissible to humans or animal species other than the cat family. FeLV is a fragile virus that does not survive in the environment. Ordinary household detergents and bleach effectively kill this virus. There is therefore no danger that cats can be exposed to FeLV in veterinary clinic waiting rooms or exam rooms, or in cages, or at cat shows unless direct contact is made with a positive cat who is shedding virus. Transmission of FeLV requires intimate moist contact. The most common route is contact with infected saliva through grooming, licking, biting and shared dishes and litter pans. FeLV can also be transmitted through a blood transfusion, so all cats who are blood donors are screened for FeLV. Kittens can be infected by their mother before birth or during nursing after birth.

    Over the next few weeks, I will be adding information to this site about our Honored Patient Heroes, 13 year old Lelia Huber and 33 year old Troy Ford. Both have battled and are currently winning the fight against their blood related cancers, as they are both in remission. I will also be adding information about my personal progress toward both my running goals and my fundraising goals.

    Leukemia pill shows promise against stomach cancer
    Gleevec, which was just approved for treating leukemia, also shows promise against a type of stomach cancer From Rhonda Rowland CNN Medical Correspondent (CNN) Last fall, 41-year-old Marina Symcox gave up on cancer treatment and began preparing for her funeral. At 38, Symcox had been diagnosed with a gastrointestinal stromal tumor, or GIST a type of stomach cancer that affects as many as 5,000 Americans each year. "I had absolutely been given no hope right from the beginning," she said. Until recently, there was no effective treatment for GIST. But researchers reported Sunday that a new cancer pill approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for a common type of adult leukemia showed encouraging results when used on stomach cancers like those Symcox had. The pill was approved for use against leukemia last week and has been hailed as a major breakthrough. It is taken once a day and causes virtually no side effects.
