Leukemia is a cancer of blood-forming tissues, including bone marrow. Many types exist such as acute lymphoblastic leukemia, acute myeloid leukemia, and chronic lymphocytic leukemia. 

The 5-year relative survival rate is 95.1 percent for all people with HL who were younger than 45 years at diagnosis. 

Rapidly growing types of leukemia may cause symptoms that include fatigue, weight loss, frequent infections, and easy bleeding or bruising. Tons of children, elders, and middle-aged people suffer from Leukemia/Lymphoma. 

We wanted to make this article to spread awareness for families and friends that have lost people from cancer. The link we attached is to donate and raise money for awareness.
