Is chemotheraphy required for kids suffering from Acute Myeloid Leukemia?

Once your child is diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) doctors will start her on chemotherapy right away. Chemotherapy is the first line of treatment for children with AML. Intensive chemotherapy is important to help your child get back into remission. Your child is treated with an intensified course of chemotherapy over a short period of time, usually about five to six months. Generally, children with AML stay in the hospital for the entire time during treatment.
