Prayers Coming Your Way! Lower Township Police Officer Kenny Walker diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)
Lower Township--Police Officer Kenny Walker was diagnosed Tuesday, February 11, 2020 with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). That same day he was transferred from Cape Regional Medical Center to UPenn Hospital in Pennsylvania and immediately began chemotherapy treatment.
The word "acute" denotes the disease's rapid progression. It's called myelogenous leukemia because it affects a group of white blood cells also called the myeloid cells, which normally develop into various types of mature blood cells, such as red and white blood cells, as well as platelets.
AML can sometimes spread to other parts of the body including lymph nodes, liver, spleen, and the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord).
Please keep Kenny and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
