Dear Susan :
thank you for your question.
Juvenile chronic myelogenous leukemia  ( JCML with Ph- chromosome ) has similar features to acute myelogenous leukemia in that it has a more rapid course than the adult form of CML ( with Ph+ chromosome ) . Our hematology team recommends bone marrow transplantation for this condition. I have included a couple more websites that may be able to give your friend some more information on the prognosis for this specific type of CML.
Good luck
