In March of 2015, Jerry went in for a routine physical. He wasn't feeling badly and he had no worrisome symptoms. After reviewing his blood work, which was not that out of the ordinary, his very astute doctor asked him to return for another sample. From there, the blood work was still not what she wanted to see, and she referred him to a hematologist/oncologist, and it was then he was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. He spent all of April receiving treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC until he achieved complete remission. This was followed up by 3 subsequent rounds of chemotherapy. September 26th, 2016, we found out that he had relapsed. He will now attempt to achieve another complete remission, followed up by a stem cell transplant.
