Your body fights off cancer cells all day, everyday. All it takes is that one cancer cell to slip through and affect your body with the little germs that they carry. You can get cancer through anything you do, even by taking care of your body. It’s inevitable.

What’s cancer ?

There has yet to be an exact source of how you obtain leukemia, but they do know how the process affects us. Cancer usually begins with a mutated cell multiplying and producing more and more of their little sick cells. Leukemia works similar to how other cancers are formed, the only difference would have to be leukemia is so fatal but so is all cancer.

There are many forms of treatment such as chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. There are so many different things that you could do to help treat your cancer, but it all depends on how bad your cancer is and the type of cancer it is. You start off with 5-6 rounds of chemo, by the 3rd round your hair starts to fall out and your mouth could start to get warts. By the 5th round your teeth could start to get weak making it really hard to eat, because it feels like your teeth are going to fall out. You can get a special mouthwash and toothpaste  to help with all of that stuff, it’s some crazy stuff.
