Leukemia, Blood Cancers & Disorders

Getting a leukemia, lymphoma or bone marrow cancer diagnosis can be frightening. It's hard to find reassurance about what's going to happen and 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.

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 leukemia types. Because of our success rates, many insurance companies designate our program as a Center of Excellence.
