A leading cancer specialist tells the compelling stories of three adult leukemia patients and their treatments, the disease itself, and the drugs developed to treat it.

When you are told that you have leukemia, your world stops. Your brain can''t function. You are asked to make decisions about treatment almost immediately, when you are not in your right mind. And yet you pull yourself together and start asking questions. Beside you is your doctor, whose job it is to solve the awful puzzle of bone marrow gone wrong. The two of you are in it together. In When Blood Breaks Down, Mikkael Sekeres, a leading cancer specialist, takes readers on the journey that patient and doctor travel together.
Mikkael A. Sekeres, MD, is Director of the Leukemia Program at the Cleveland Clinic, where he is also Professor of Medicine and Vice Chair for Clinical Research at the Taussig Cancer Institute. He writes regularly for the Well section of the New York Times.
