Understanding Leukaemia and Related Cancers Reviews


"Undoubtedly the diagnosis of blood cancer irrevocably changes the lifestyle of the patient as well as the whole family. The diagnosis often carries an undercurrent of dread and even terror, largely because of the general public's perception of these diseases, much of which stems from non-medical media reports. But the medical facts speak for themselves: an increasing proportion of patients with certain types of blood cancers are now being cured. Perhaps, I, myself, can be considered fortunate enough to be among them. Reading Understanding Leukaemia and Related Cancers should facilitate a better understanding and help patients to improve their chances of cure. Knowing what lies ahead at each moment is also an important source of encouragement." - Jos #233; Carreras President, International Jose Carreras Foundation
