Below the surface, living with leukemia can mean days spent in bed, missed appointments, and alternate days when we seem "fine." There's so much more to leukemia than meets the eye. We know that leukemia comes with hundreds of possible combinations of symptoms, many of which appear invisible to outsiders. Most people don't see the many symptoms we experience.
On MyLeukemiaTeam, the social network and online support group for people living with leukemia, thousands of members discuss the chronic nature of the disease and its hidden symptoms. Throughout the year we will share themes we see come up time and time again on MyLeukemiaTeam. We chose the image of an iceberg to represent leukemia symptoms because the life-impacting implications of a leukemia diagnosis aren't obvious on the surface. Please share to spread leukemia awareness!
This list is by no means exhaustive. What symptoms would you add?
