An estimated 245,225 people in the United States are currently living with leukemia or are in remission. More than forty-three thousand Americans are diagnosed with the disease each year. But leukemia is no longer the almost-certain death sentence that it once was. Advanced treatment options have increased survival rates and even brought about complete cures in some cases. As USA TODAY, the Nation's No. 1 Newspaper, reports, "About 20,000 bone marrow transplants are performed annually in the USA to treat disorders such as leukemia." Success in methods such as bone marrow and stem cell transplants continue to push treatment forward for patients of all ages. In this book, you'll read case studies of people with various types of leukemia and learn about the effects of this frightening but often treatable cancer. You'll also discover the risk factors for developing leukemia, common symptoms, treatment methods, and advances in research that will surely lead to improved treatment and even more complete cures in the future.
