Here are the results of Billy's 1st bone marrow aspiration and biopsy taken on Oct. 7th , 2003 . Another test was performed on Nov. 4th , 2003 to determine the course of action for treatment . For the average person (like me) reading these test results , you have no idea as to what it all means until it is explained in "plain english" . It is the plain english that we all dread .To bring you up to speed , Our Son Billy was diagnosed in Sept. 2002 with ewings sarcoma (bone cancer) . After chemotherapy and radical surgery to remove his right femur and knee , he was in the home stretch to complete his treatment (protocol) , when his blood counts began to decline . His final treatments for ewings sarcoma were put on hold as the Dr.'s looked for a cause for his counts to decline , and not respond . The test results below confirm their concerns , Billy is developing Leukemia most likely caused by the chemotherapy used to cure his bone cancer . Billy needs a bone marrow transplant , Now the battle really begins...........
