Conditions Treated

  • Leukemia is cancer that affects white blood cells, which grow in bone marrow and help fight infection. Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) prevents lymphoblasts, an immature type of white blood cell, from developing into mature lymphocytes. ALL cells accumulate and crowd out healthy blood cells.
  • Leukemia in Children and Adolescents

    Pediatric hematologists/oncologists at Rush University Children’s Hospital focus on developing a personalized care plan to treat leukemia in your child with the fewest side effects as possible.
