Leukemia starts in the bone marrow, but often moves into the blood. It can then spread to other parts of the body, such as the lymph nodes, spleen, liver, and central nervous system. This guidebook provides essential information on Leukemia, but also serves as a historical survey, by providing information on the controversies surrounding its causes, and first-person narratives by people coping with Leukemia. Readers will learn from the words of patients, family members, or caregivers. The symptoms, causes, treatments, and potential cures are explained in detail. Alternative treatments are also covered. Student researchers and readers will find this book easily accessible through its careful and conscientious editing and a thorough introduction to each essay.
