If you or a loved one lives in Birmingham, Alabama, or anywhere in Jefferson County Alabama,* and you suffer from leukemia, you may have been shocked, perhaps even angered, if your initial application for Social Security Disability benefits or SSI benefits was denied, but don't give up. The fact is that the vast majority of applications for disability benefits are initially denied. You best chance at winning you claim for disability benefits lies in your appeal.

Leukemia is a disease which affects the cells which form your blood; it begins in the bone marrow and is characterized by the production of an excessive amount of white blood cells. Normal total white blood cell counts is about 5,000 to 10,000/mm. With leukemia the white blood cell count can rise over 100,000/mm, while red blood cell production is decreased.

Leukemia can cause extreme fatigue, weakness, bone pain and anemia. Leukemia can be either acute or chronic.

Acute leukemia develop from early cells, called "blasts." Blasts divide often and don't stop multiplying.

Chronic Leukemia develops from more mature cells. These cells develop more slowly than those caused by acute leukemia, but they live too long and accumulate in your body.

Leukemia can develop from myeloid cells (myelogenous leukemia) or from lymphoblasts in the blood marrow (lymphocytic leukemia).

Being diagnosed with leukemia is devastating enough; you don't have to go through the process of obtaining you Social Security Disability benefits of SSI benefits alone. If you suffer from leukemia and have questions about your appeal, the experienced Birmingham Social Security Disability lawyers at Powell and Denny would be happy to speak with you to try to answer your questions or help with your appeal.
