    Low/standard risk ALL actually has almost a 90% event free survival rate. High risk has a lower percentage. The most recent number I can find is 65% but I don't know if that reflects the very latest research information.

    ALL is not staged like other kinds of cancer. Patients are assigned different risk levels based on a number of criteria, including age (under 1 and over 10 automatically makes the patient high risk), white blood cell count at diagnosis (over 50,000 automatically makes the patient high risk), and cytogenetics. High risk patients are treated on a different protocol than standard risk patients.

    There are several factors to take into consideration which you are not telling us, but overall 85% go into long term remission. Being 7-8 years old is also a good prognostic factor.
