Over the last few years, we have seen a number of medical advances that will significantly help patients with blood cancers.

These include new “immunotherapy” drugs that enhance the patient’s own immune system to fight against cancer and new therapies that target very specific weaknesses in cancer cells while sparing normal blood cells. We are seeing another revolution in cancer treatment which will cure many more patients of their blood cancers.
