By in Acute Pro Myeloid Leukaemia, Arsenic, Chemotherapy, Ny Gani

Ny Gani (Najma Yasmin Gani) was first diagnosed with Acute Pro Myeloid Leukaemia in 2006, which is a rare cancerous malignancy of the Blood and the Bone marrow; she achieved remission, but has subsequently relapsed in 2007 and then again in 2008.

It was decided due to the aggressive nature of her particular Leukaemia and the rarity she would be receiving a matching-sibling-allograft-bone marrow transplant, after further chemotherapy and radiotherapy. That third attempt to cure her with the full Bone Marrow Transplant gave her almost a year Cancer free, though she was in extremely strong Immuno-Suppression therapy, to ensure the transplant was not rejected.

Ny Gani has never been without Chemotherapy treatment since her first diagnosis in 2006. furthermore she has remained as an in-patient for most of her duration of treatment, spending over 2 years and eight months in a specialised Haematology & Oncology unit, most times in complete isolation.

During a business trip in Dubai she further relapsed in July 2010. She is currently receiving Chemotherapy and Immunotherapy for her condition. in the form of mini-bone marrow transplants every three months. But a Bone marrow Biopsy performed on her Sternum in May 2011, showed that the year of treatment had no net effect on her Cancer levels, in June 2011, she will be admitted into Hospital for a Chemotherapy Arsenic Trioxide regimen receiving over 40 doses of Arsenic Chemotherapy, in an attempt to bring her some cure and comfort.

Ny Gani has had four relapses of Acute Pro Myeloid Leukaemia in five years, this is unheard of, and is both and emotional and physical journey of a truly inspirational woman.
