What is my survival rate against AML leukemia?

I'm at the hospital and I'm starting my chemo tonight. I'm terrified. I'm 15 years old, 5'6, average weight female. What are my survival chances? I'm getting treated at Stanford Children's Hospital in California, one of the best hospitals or so I've heard. I just need to hear from someone that I'm not gonna die.

    Cindy, you will be alright, I mean it.

    It's terrifying I understand, but you'll make it through. You wont die, many people have survived cancer and became a stronger person. The nurses and doctors at Standford will take care of you without a doubt (: I have been and still go to Standford.

    If you need any advice, concerns, or questions you can message me and I'll be here to help. I've gone through the process at Standford. Remember to be surrounding by the people you love and eat healthy. I will pray for you.

    You will survive!

    Don't freak out. Leukemia is treated all the time. In the mean time relax, watch some movies, play some games, and listen to the doctors they know what they're doing. I'm praying for you.
