Leukemia strikes people of all ages, races and genders. However, incredible progress has been made through research in the treatment of this disease. Depending upon the specific diagnosis, as many as 70-90% of children and 50% of adults have the potential for long term survival.

Research supported by Leukemia Texas contributes to a better understanding of these diseases and an improved outlook for cure. Leukemia Texas has taken an active role in contributing to the successes that research has achieved. Through its Research program, Leukemia Texas awards grants for research conducted in Texas to develop new and improved treatment methods and ultimately a cure for leukemia.
