Diagnosed with chronic myelomonocytic leukemia
I was recently diagnosed with this rare leukemia. Mostly, men are affected with this because there are more men who come in contact with contaminated material. There is no cure at the present time. I was placed on Hydroxyurea to help stabilized this until there is a cure. I believe the reason for this condition is because I worked years ago for a large Oil/Gas company that didn't require workers to wear respirators while handling contaminated equipment. The dust and sludge on down hole logging tools contained radioactive matter most of the time. I am seeking others who have been diagnosed with this who have worked with similar equipment.
