In brief: There may be solutio

Your doctor or your mothers treating doctor can help inform you about the exact diagnosis and the anticipated prognosis.
Since there are 4 types of leukemias, each with a variable prognosis, you need to find out the type of leukemia she has. This will then lead you to find out if she is receiving good treatment which can often give many years of survival depending on her response to treatment.
