“You’d better pray for leukemia” What???

I have discovered the Aplastic Anemia & MDS International Foundation Website:

On the website, there is a story about a boy who received the same treatment that Ryan started last night.  The opening of the story made my heart sink, but overall, it is a positive story.  The treatment put the boy into remission over 10 years ago and he remains in remission.

Excerpt: Barbara Manley found herself living every parent’s nightmare the night her two-year-old son, David, was admitted to the hospital for increasingly serious bruising. “The doctor said it’s either aplastic anemia or leukemia, and you’d better pray for leukemia. I knew leukemia was bad, so that was horrifying.”
