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.

A fifteen-year cancer survivor, Perry Rothaus feels that not enough attention is given to caregivers, and he credits his wife, Judi, with his survival. Judi researched his type of cancer, decided on the Abramson Cancer Center for his care, and and accompanied him on every hospital visit. Having someone to rely on for support during treatments was very important to Perry and since he retired from his family business, he has dedicated time to volunteering at the Abramson Cancer Center. A long time cancer survivor, Perry enjoys walking around the until talking with cancer patients, and seeing people's faces change as they hear his survival story. They know he was once in their place.
