My name is Alex Ung, I am 34 years old. I am married with 3 children. 2 girls and 1 boy, ages are 9 years old, 7 years old and 5 years old. I am the main income earner, my wife does not work.
I have never been sick or hospitalised before, this is my first time.
I was diagnosed with a rare genetic mutation of AML FLT-3 on 5-12-2020.
I went through the first treatment called 7+3 chemotherapy but I relapsed after 3 weeks of receiving the treatment which caused me to have immense bone pain while I relapsed. From that treatment, I was put on another treatment called FLAG IDA chemotherapy which was done twice.
I have had about 4 or 5 bone marrow biopsy.
I have had a stem cell transfusion since 30-03-2021.
I was in the hospital for about 5 months in total. There were some side effects to all the treatments which some days really took a toll on me physically and mentally. I was fortunate enough to have my wife by my side while I was going through this.
