Types Of Childhood Cancer
Leukemias- cancer of the tissues of the body that make the blood cells and the bone marrow. When leukemia strikes, the body makes an abundance of abnormal white cells that do not perform their proper functions. They invade the marrow and crowd out the normal, healthy blood cells, making the patient susceptible to infection and bruising.
Lymphomas- are cancers that arise in the lymph system, the body’s circulatory network for filtering out impurities. It can arise in the tonsils, thymus, bone, small intestine, spleen, or lymph glands anywhere in the body. The disease can spread to the central nervous system and the bone marrow.
