Blood Cancer

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia is the most common type of blood cancer found in children. It starts in the bone marrow and causes the body to produce an overabundance of unhealthy white blood cells. The two most common types of leukemia are acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), which kids tend to get, and acute myeloid leukemia (AML), which occurs more frequently in adults. Another type of childhood blood cancer is lymphoma, which affects the immune system and lymphocytes. The two types of lymphoma are Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. With lymphoma, the infected cells do not properly protect the body and they push out the healthy cells.
