... advice/information about Leukemia. My father, age 72, was recently diagnosed with chronic Leukemia, and I am very concern for him. The doctors are not seeming to be informing my mother and I on how serious this diagnosis could be, and we seem to be getting very little information from. Can anyone here provide me with some possible information? My father is scheduled to start the chemo injections tomorrow, and I am very worried about that, because he is already weak, and has lost a lot of weight. Thank you
