Leukemia is a type of blood cancer. Leukemia is the most common cancer in children. Overall, the chance that a child with leukemia can be cured is high. However, when leukemia occurs in babies, the chance of cure is much lower. We are trying to find new and better treatments for these babies. These leukemias have abnormal ways of organizing their DNA. This may be making them harder to cure. We want to understand this better. We want to find new treatments that can fix this abnormal DNA organization. We hope this will help cure more babies.
