My DS8 who is on the spectrum just got diagnosed with leukemia yesterday. We were totally blindsided. Luckily, my DS is high functioning and was able to tell me that he wasn't feeling well. He's had 2 treatments to bring his white cells down, spinal tap, bone marrow sample, port placed in his chest and chemo started. He is taking everything in stride and so brave. I would love to hear others' experiences with treatment. We are very hopeful that he will beat this.
