Leukemia Treatment

Leukemia treatment can be complex, but we offer strategies and resources that can help to make your treatment successful. For example, hematology and oncology care is enhanced by the services provided by the Cancer Patient Support Program and the Victoria Buffum Endowment Fund. Patients and family members can receive psychological and nutrition services, massage, yoga, several support groups and other services through the Cancer Patient Support Program and grants provided by the Buffum Fund.

Leukemia treatments at Fletcher Allen are based on the type of cancer you have, its size and location, the extent (called stage) of the cancer, your overall health and your preferences. Your team of doctors will take all of that into account with the treatments they recommend.
