Disease Information & Support


The Word:


Making Treatment Decisions

Gathering Information and Support

Adults living with blood cancer need to make decisions related to treatment, family, work or school and finances. If your child has been diagnosed with leukemia or lymphoma, you must make similar decisions for your son or daughter.

You'll need to choose:

  • the oncology practice, hospital or center where your treatment will take place
  • the specialist who'll develop and coordinate the treatment plan
  • the type of treatment

To make decisions, you need information to help you understand your diagnosis and treatment options. Throughout treatment and survivorship, you'll also be making choices about financial considerations and support issues.
