Living with Leukemia

Living with leukemia can often be hard, both for the affected person as well as the caregiver. Even the diagnosis of cancer can be a very unpleasant thing to live with. However, with the many treatments and medical aid available today, living and coping with leukemia has become much easier than before.

Despite this, leukemia is a disease characterized by cycles of remission and relapse. This means that you will have to be subjected to continuous therapy, some of which is often life long. It takes a very strong will and a lot of patience as well as courage to be inspired enough to look at the bright side of life despite the situation you are in.

Psychological aid is also available to patients and their caregiver to ensure good mental health, which is necessary for fighting and coping with this disease.
