Just for AML Patients and Caregivers
Navigating AML can be an incredible challenge. HealthTree for AML is a new division of the HealthTree Foundation here to support you on each step of your AML journey. You are not alone and we want to provide the tools and support you need to manage AML and live your happiest, healthiest life.
Our programs will always be specific to AML so that you can easily and quickly find information that is relevant and useful to you. We are here to educate you, empower you and connect you to others who relate to you.
On the HealthTree for AML website, you will find information such as managing your treatment regimen, questions to ask your doctor, stories written personally by AML survivors and breaking news about new drug approvals and important clinical trials.
Find an AML Expert in our New Online AML Specialist Directory
Finding an AML expert to help guide your treatment can improve your success and extend your life. An AML specialist treats hundreds of patients every year, is up-to-speed on the latest and most effective AML treatments and knows how to best treat your AML. Find a top specialist today in our AML Specialist Directory every time you need to make a treatment decision.
See AML Clinical Trials
Clinical trials should be considered at every step of your treatment journey because they can provide earlier access to cutting-edge treatments you otherwise could not receive. There are currently hundreds of open AML clinical trials.
If you are a newly diagnosed or relapsed AML patient, use our HealthTree for AML Clinical Trial Finder to easily find trials that are personally most relevant to you and your specific type of AML.

We have a lot of new things coming your way very soon!
- HealthTree for AML Radio: a podcast-style show where we interview top AML experts from across the globe with the goal of informing you of cutting-edge research and clinical trials that may help treat your AML. We have a radio show set for September with Dr. Mannis, an AML expert who sees patients at Stanford in California.
- HealthTree University for AML: a video series that explains everything you need to know about AML from the most basic of topics to the most complex, all explained in easy to understand language. These videos only include information from doctors who are the leaders in AML treatment so you can learn from the best!
- HealthTree Round Tables for AML: in-person events at various locations across the country for you to come and learn directly from AML experts and meet others with AML. These are multi-hour presentations that include 4-6 specialists.
- HealthTree for AML Chapter Events: AML is a rare disease, and it can be difficult to connect with others who understand exactly what you are going through. Our chapters aim to bring people with AML closer together so that we can all give and receive support. We will offer two initial chapters which include an AML patient chapter and a caregivers chapter. These chapters will meet virtually throughout the year. These meetings will be facilitated as support groups and often will have AML experts come to speak to the group. We intend to develop more chapters in the future that are specific to location, types of treatment and other interests that we identify from our initial chapters.
