Francis Magalona Has Leukemia
Pinoy Master Rapper Francis Magalona or Francis M, has leukemia. Many people did not expect Francis Magalona to have leukemia because he seemed to be a very healthy individual. This news about the rapper was confirmed by his colleagues and friends from “Eat Bulaga”.
Francis Magalona Has LeukemiaWikipedia describes leukemia as cancer of the blood or bone marrow and is characterized by an abnormal proliferation (production by multiplication) of blood cells, usually white blood cells (leukocytes). Leukemia is a broad term covering a spectrum of diseases. In turn, it is part of the even broader group of diseases called hematological neoplasms.
Francis Magalona’s leukemia incited anxiety and concern from close friends, family members and fans. Leukemia is not a condition that can be cured by simply taking in oral medicines. This condition requires blood transfusion. According to news reports, at least 50 individuals donated blood to the blood bank of The Medical City (situated along Ortigas avenue in Pasig City) for Francis Magalona’s scheduled blood transfusion session/s in the future. If you are in Manila and want to donate some blood for Francis Magalona’s use, please proceed to The Medical City.
The cause of leukemia is unknown up to this time (typical characteristic of cancer). However, researchers and scientists suspect that it could be acquired either by natural or artificial ionizing radiation, viral infection, certain kinds of chemicals or genetic predispositions. These are mere theories and none has been proven valid yet. These theories have yet to undergo series of tests to be declared as the real cause or causes of leukemia.
I sincerely hope Francis Magalona’s leukemia can still be cured. It is not certain though what type of leukemia Francis Magalona has because complete news on his condition is not yet released to the public.
