I was just curious, does anyone have a working knowledge of the effects of Leukemia? Specifically, I guess I am asking - what should I expect if I have a parent who is diagnosed with it? Is treatment pervasive? What kind of longevity/life span should I expect? Symptoms?

Any insight would be much appreciated.

    You need to be more specific about the type of leukemia. The answers to your questions vary a lot depending on the exact type of leukemia.

      So after a bit of cajoling, found out it is Chronic Lymphocytic - which from my understanding - is the most aggressive form ... not sure what else to think about it other than it's awful.
