Hey everyone, I found the contact info for the DoDMRB help desk in this forum and sent them the question below. That was several months ago and haven't heard anything back. I'm sure they're pretty busy with other requests for info, so I thought I would post it here to see if anyone might be able to help. Thanks. My question concerns my son’s future plans for Army ROTC. He’s currently a senior in high school and would like to obtain a commission through ROTC. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with A.L.L. leukemia a few years back. He’s doing quite well, is in remission and is currently in the maintenance stage of chemotherapy. His doctors predict a full recovery and he should be off his chemo drugs next year. My question then is, is this is a show-stopper? Are waivers for prior cancer something that DodMRB routinely rejects out of hand? I think it’s best we find out sooner rather than later in order to minimize the disappointment and get him vectored on another career path. I was unable to find anything in AR 40-501 regarding blood cancers, although I seem to remember reading something about a five-year rule regarding the possibility of a waiver if the applicant has been in remission for five-years. Apparently, that five-year rule has been deleted in the current guidance. Any information you can provide or any other source of information would be greatly appreciated.
