The Hairy Cell Leukemia Foundation improves outcomes for patients through research in hairy cell leukemia (HCL), by advancing knowledge about HCL among oncologists and hematologists, and by providing educational resources and comfort to patients and families affected by the disease. Hairy cell leukemia is a chronic, rare form of adult leukemia. Approximately 2% of all adult patients with leukemia have this form of disease. There is an unexplained larger number of men than women afflicted with this leukemia. While there is no cure for HCL, the treatment is usually effective in helping patients lead a normal life.
