For the tens of thousands of Americans with adult leukemia, the condition, which is really a group of diseases, is often a baffling one for patients and families to understand, and finding targeted information on individual conditions can be difficult. 'Adult leukemia' addresses - diagnosis and medical tests, finding a good oncologist; treatments, side effects, emotional responses to diagnosis, treatment, remission, possible recurrence, and getting support from your family, friends, employers, and the broader community. Author Barb 'Grannybarb' Lackritz is a leading patient activist in the leukemia community and herself a long-term leukemia survivor. She emphasizes the promising emerging treatments for leukemia, covering in depth the clinical trials of new therapies grounded in Western medicine. The research information, glossary, and appendixes will provide welcome support for those who want to keep up with the latest research.
