In brief: It depends...

Hematopoietic stem cell transplant (hsct) appears to be the most effective treatment for jmml and can cure about half the patients.
If left untreated, jmml is rapidly fatal with a median survival time of approximately 1 year the absence of hsct. Low platelet count, age above 2 years at diagnosis, and high Hemoglobin F are negative prognostic factors.
