Nearly 1.3 million people in the United States are in remission or in treatment for blood cancer. In recognition of blood cancer awareness month this September, Methodist Hospital, located on Floyd Curl Drive, lights its exterior red in support of those diagnosed with blood cancer and those who have lost their fight to the disease.
There are three main types of blood cancer: leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. While there are no effective blood cancer screening programs for early prevention and detection, which has posed a gap in battling the disease, treatment has advanced greatly over the years and cutting-edge therapies are available for patients right here in San Antonio.
As the largest stem cell transplant program in South Texas, the Transplant and Cellular Therapy Program at Methodist Hospital offers decades of experience and leadership in innovative therapies. In partnership with Sarah Cannon, the Cancer Institute of HCA Healthcare, Methodist Hospital provides comprehensive cancer services with convenient access to advanced therapies for people facing cancer in our communities. From diagnosis to treatment and survivorship care, our oncology expertise ensures you have access to locally-trusted care with the support of a globally-recognized network.
