Getting a leukemia, lymphoma, or bone marrow cancer diagnosis can be frightening. It's hard to find reassurance about what's going to happen. You don't know how long treatment and recovery will take. Especially when your body feels weak and sick. 

That's why, at UVA, we're in it with you, for the long term. Your care stays our top priority.

Leukemia Treatment Experience

Today, the outlook for many patients with leukemia is very good. Still, where you find treatment matters. Make sure you ask questions. Don’t be afraid to seek a second opinion.

At UVA, you’ll find over 20 years’ experience in several types of blood cancer. Many insurance companies name us a Center of Excellence due to our success rates.
