Blood cancer

Blood cancer occurs when stem cells in your bone marrow produce an uncontrolled growth of abnormal blood cells. These cells keep your blood from fighting infections and preventing excessive bleeding. Treatment options include chemotherapy, radiation therapy and stem cell transplantation.

Blood cancer care we offer

Our cancer team provides a range of treatments including:

  • CAR T-cell therapy (use of patient's immune system to fight cancer)
  • Chemotherapy

Blood and marrow transplant (BMT)

For some patients, a blood and marrow transplant also known as stem cell transplant may be necessary for their condition. BMTs assist the body in making blood cells after intense chemotherapy or radiation therapy. These therapies are used to kill blood cancer cells, but they are not targeted. This means healthy cells are also destroyed in the process. A BMT can help replace those cells.
