Does anyone know where I can find a good website or other reference to find information about leukemia in children?

I work at City of Hope and researchers here do groundbreaking research into all cancers, especially leukemia. www.coh.org.

If you're looking for anecdotal stuff from patients and their families, just search for support forums. Let the members know you're there and what you're looking for.
