Leukaemia is a rare condition affecting 20K to 200K people per year. It is basically a cancer that doesn’t allow ones blood and bone-marrow to function properly. It lowers your white blood cell count and makes your body vulnerable to fight infection, diseases, and more. No one really knows the main causes of Leukaemia but doctors say that the main “probable cause” would be radiation.
I chose this cancer because I have read books like “Drums, Girls, Dangerous Pie” and it made me wonder about the topic. I used to think leukaemia was a cancer that made you get hurt easily and that was it. But now I know that it is much more that, your life is basically on the line and if not treated, you could die.
