Stage at diagnosis was applied to population data on children with blood cancers, showing variable survival by stage for acute lymphoblastic leukemia and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, but no difference in survival by stage for acute myeloid leukemia. Almost all children with Hodgkin lymphoma survived five years.

Haematological cancer survivors were identified as reporting above normal levels of anxiety, depression and stress.

Supporting a person diagnosed with haematological cancer correlates with a high level of unmet needs. Support persons living in rural areas are more likely to report finance-related unmet need than their urban counterparts.

In people diagnosed with haematological cancer and their support persons, unmet needs may mediate the interdependence of psychosocial experiences.

Health care providers should consider providing additional education and skills-based interventions to support persons of haematological cancer survivors who experience increased symptoms of depression.

When you see a haematologist today you may have questions and concerns. Often these are forgotten in the heat of the moment, only to be remembered later.
