I presume that you mean that your child has been diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia or ALL. The outlook for a cure with this form of leukaemia in children is good particularly if the child is older than one year, which your child is.The most important stage which will determine the outlook for a good result is the response to the first stage of treatment with chemotherapy. I am sure that if your child is being treated in a good haematology/oncology department in a children's hospital that your child will be cured.
