Leukaemia Travel Insurance

Leukaemia is a type of Cancer that affects a person’s bone marrow, which is where blood cells are produced. Leukaemia causes the production of unusually high numbers of undeveloped white blood cells that are called blasts or Leukaemia cells. This abundance of blasts overpowers the other blood cells, causing a lack of oxygen in the body, a severely weakened immune system and a decreased ability to heal wounds. There are four types of Leukaemia, some more treatable than others. Treatment includes Radiation Therapy, Chemotherapy and Bone Marrow Transplants.

Travel Advice with Leukaemia

You are advised not to travel on long trips whilst in treatment as your immune system is compromised by the therapy. Air travel is especially bad for contracting airborne illnesses. You should also not receive any vaccinations during treatments and for up to 6 months afterwards in light of your weakened immune system. If it is necessary to travel then make sure to take anti-bacterial wipes for all surfaces you will come across. If taking Medication, ensure you bring a plentiful supply and keep it in hand luggage in case of delays or loss of luggage.
