Leukemia Information

The Joshua Kahan Fund understands your need to have information regarding pediatric leukemia. We have taken the approach that one central location to obtain information from multiple sources is better than having to search the internet for a variety of different sources. We are providing you access to a broad range of information that starts with the "What is Leukemia" and moves on into more detail from there.

On the following pages, which you can easily navigate by using the menu on the left side of this screen, you will find information from the National Cancer Institute, the Leukemia and Lumphoma Society, Oncolink, and other sources that we thought would be invaluable in your quest for information and answers.

The National Cancer Institute booklet titled, "What You Need to Know About Leukemia" is a great starting point and can be found by clicking on our "What is Leukemia" navigation button. You can also focus in on researching types of leukemia, developing an understanding of clinical trials, reading the most recent leukemia news, or searching for leukemia organizations and support groups

The most common form of leukemia in children is acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL). There is optimism within cancer centers that specialize in pediatrics because the survival statistics have dramatically improved over the past 30 years. Most children with ALL are cured.

To understand leukemia, The Joshua Kahan Fund believes the information that we have captured and attached to the following pages will help you. We wish you luck with your fight.
