The diagnosis of leukemia can be devastating, but there are different forms of it and different kinds of treatment.  The Social Security Administration may be able to pay you government disability benefits if you prove that your leukemia is expected to keep you from working full-time for 1 year or more.  This is good to know when you may have uncertainties about prognosis and treatment.

Leukemia, cancer of your body’s tissues that form your blood, can impact your bone marrow, your, lymphatic system, and other parts of your body.  Some of your symptoms may include unexplained fatigue and weakness.  You may also lose weight uncontrollably.  If you have leukemia, make sure that your physician knows about any symptoms that concern you.  This keeps a medical “track record” of your functional limitations associated with your diagnosis.
