In the United States, an estimated 376,000 live with a form of cancer called leukemia. The number of people living with another form of cancer, lymphoma, is nearly double that of leukemia.
In 2020, the healthcare industry should diagnose more than 60,000 new cases of leukemia and around 85,000 new cases of lymphoma. The earlier both forms of cancer are diagnosed, the more likely a patient beats either disease.
Increasing public awareness is the key to treating lymphoma and leukemia.
