Call it the name Kayla. In four years of age and is considered bright and easy to get along with people around him. But who would have thought that the disease this guy is gay or a blood cancer leukemia.

Already in the past two years, the disease gnawing his body. "Leukemia is a type of cancer than older children diidap" said pediatrician Dharmais Cancer Hospital, Edi Setiawan Tehuteru.

Today, cancer is not only a scourge only for adults, children are now already attacked the disease. In Indonesia, there were 41,000 cases of childhood cancer per year. And he said, the cases of 10% of child deaths caused by cancer and Indonesia, came from families who could not afford.

In 2008, new cases of childhood cancer in the Cancer Hospital Dharmais

The danger, cancer often has no symptoms, that is, if not still at an early stage, many people who do not believe that family members suffering from cancer. In fact, cancer that occurs in children can be cured by early detection or early-stage scat.

However, not all cancers in children could be prevented or detected early. Leukemia, for example, can only be avoided by giving breast milk (ASI), exclusively. And hard to detect, causing leukemia in children is also likely to present. Experts suspect, genetic factors, exposure to chemicals, food preservatives, and the virus triggers a child suffering from leukemia.

Clinically, thalassemia divided into three types, namely, major, intermediate and minor. Thalassemia major patient's body can not form red blood cells so you must get a lifetime of blood transfusions. In general, transfusion perform once or twice a month.

Thalassemia intermedia patients require transfusions, but not as often as the primary victims. Whereas patients with only minor (trait) that does not undergo severe clinical symptoms.

It is also known as hemophilia, blood disease is difficult to freeze. In people with hemophilia, minor injuries will be serious because the blood would be difficult to freeze and pour the terns. Besides the hard frozen blood, hemophilia patients also often experience bleeding under the skin or bruising when doing heavy work.
