Patient discussion about childhood
Q. How many types of childhood leukemia are there? My friend's 3 year old son, Jacob, was just diagnosed with Leukemia. I haven't been able to talk to her as she is with him in the hospital - he is starting chemo today. I just wondered how many types are there and which ones are most likely curable? Thank you!
