Patient Video - Gayle’s story: What has been the biggest success for you with your AML?
Gayle talks about the positive experiences she has had so far in her journey with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). She considers the greatest success to be the bone marrow transplant she underwent. Fortunately, she had very few side effects. She also reflects on being able to accept her new life. She climbed Mount Kilimanjaro 18 months after her bone marrow transplant, which she considers a huge accomplishment although she realizes she may have pushed herself too much.
