That all depends on the specific diagnosis, treatment , whether it can be put into remission or cured. Untreated, it depends on the severity and type.

How long does a person with luekemia live?

Since no one can predict anyone's date of death, except GOD, a person with leukemia could possibly live until they die, same as people without leukemia. However, to speak in statistical terms, you would need to provide the type of leukemia, the stage it is, the age of the person and if the leukemia is treatable. If it is, well, they could outlive you! Do you have a monetary reason for asking? An inheritance maybe?

If you have leukemia, you WILL be living with it "for life", no matter how long your life happens to be. That said, there are some excellent treatments for leukemia that have extended your expected lifetime by years. (We haven't had them available for long enough to say "decades", but that's certainly possible.) In any event, the newer treatments, in many cases, will let you live long enough to die of something entirely unrelated.
