Abramson Cancer Center hematologic malignancies’ clinicians and researchers have led the way nationally for years; both in the care of patients with hematologic malignancies (blood cancer) and in its research.
Today, there's more hope than ever for those who face a blood cancer diagnosis.
Penn’s program is one of the oldest and largest in the country. By putting our experience to work, we offer the best possible treatment outcomes.
Penn has one of the few Hematologic Malignancy (leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma) Research Programs in the country that is approved and funded by the National Cancer Institute. It is through this research program that Penn has made significant advances in improving bone marrow and stem cell transplants and the care of patients with blood cancer.
The knowledge gained through our research allows us to better care for those with blood cancers.

"There is a plan and meaning for everyone. If you get through cancer it really does change you. It makes you a better person: you live more in the moment, you become more compassionate, and you deeply understand what other people are going through when coping with the same terror of cancer. If I had to talk to someone who has to go through what I went through I would say, stay positive and live in the moment with gratitude. One sure way to take focus off yourself is to help and serve others. My spiritually and prayer was so important during my cancer journey. As Mother Teresa said 'the fruit of prayer is love and the fruit of love is service.' My experience at Penn's Abramson Cancer Center was magnificent! Doctors provide compassionate care, coupled with cutting edge technology!"
