Blood cancers affect the blood, bone marrow, or the lymphatic system and include conditions such as leukemia, Hodgkin lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, myelodysplasia, and myeloma.
At UCHealth facilities, a caring team of doctors and support professionals from many fields works together to develop the best plan of care for you, and they stay by your side from your initial appointment through treatment and aftercare.
Today, the most specialized and focused care teams like those found at University of Colorado Health facilities in Fort Collins, Greeley, Loveland, metro Denver, and Colorado Springs can treat and even cure many of these diseases. However, the intensive treatment can severely damage the bone marrow. To restore normal blood production after large doses of chemotherapy or radiation, our UCHealth specialists use blood and marrow stem cell transplantation.
