Leukemia

Leukemia is cancer of the body's blood-forming tissues, including the bone marrow and the lymphatic system.
Leukemia usually involves the white blood cells. Your white blood cells are potent infection fighters. They normally grow and divide in an orderly way, as your body needs them. But in people with leukemia, the bone marrow produces abnormal white blood cells, which don't function properly.
