The Leukemia Diagnosis Information Page is a collaborative project of NeedyMeds and the Leukemia Research Foundation. It is intended to provide educational information and healthcare savings resources for those living with this diagnosis.

Leukemia is a type of cancer found in your blood and bone marrow and is caused by the rapid production of abnormal white blood cells. These abnormal white blood cells are not able to fight infection and impair the ability of the bone marrow to produce red blood cells and platelets. Leukemia can be either acute (requires immediate treatment) or chronic (progresses more slowly). Leukemia occurs in both adults and children. Acute lymphocytic leukemia and acute myelogenous leukemia are the most common forms of childhood leukemia. The two most common adult leukemias are acute myelogenous leukemia and chronic lymphocytic leukemia. The Leukemia Research Foundation, which is dedicated to conquering all blood cancers, offers patient education, financial assistance and a plethora of resources to enrich the quality of life of those touched by these diseases.
