Country singer BoxCar Willie dies of leukemia
BRANSON, Missouri (CNN) BoxCar Willie, whose gentle country voice and songs of life on the road evoked memories of a time when hobos watched America pass by the doors of freight cars, died Monday of leukemia. He was 67. He died at home, a family spokeswoman said. Born Lecil Martin in Sterrett, Texas, in 1931, BoxCar Willie was the son of a railroad man who used to play his fiddle on the porch while his son sat in on guitar. By his teens he had graduated to playing in jamborees all over the state, but he gave up show business to enlist in the Air Force. He spent 22 years there, logging some 10,000 hours as a flier. After retiring from the service he returned to performing, and by the 1970s he had developed the singing hobo persona, complete with overalls, a battered old hat, worn suit jacket and two days' growth of beard. Although he never had a hit single, his albums sold well over the years and he built a loyal following that would later make him one of the most popular performers in Branson, where he operated a motel and train museum as well as his theater.

Treating childhood leukemia
Editor's note: CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta answers medical questions submitted by e-mail on "Your Health," which airs at 2:30 p.m. ET Saturdays. Questions and answers are posted on after the show. Q: How common is childhood leukemia? A: Approximately 3,250 children in the United States are diagnosed with leukemia each year, according to the National Cancer Institute. The most common type is acute lymphoblastic leukemia – also known as ALL. Fortunately, this is one of the most treatable forms of childhood cancer. The treatment may consist of chemotherapy, various drugs, and in some cases, radiation or bone marrow transplant. Acute myelogenous leukemia, or AML, is less common and less treatable. It occurs in both children and adults and progresses rapidly. It also is treated with chemo. Bone marrow transplantation is much more likely with this type of leukemia. There is also CML, chronic myelogenous leukemia, which accounts for less than 5 percent of all childhood leukemia.

As the most common form of childhood cancer, ALL usually strikes between the ages of two and 10. Sometimes described as blood cancer, it affects the white blood cells which help the body combat infection. In ALL, immature white blood cells divide uncontrollably, accumulating in the bloodstream, bone marrow and lymph system. This invasion of abnormal cells interferes with the production and function of the healthy blood cells making the person with leukemia highly susceptible to infections with little or no defense. What are the symptoms of ALL?

      To Learn More About This Topic: Chat with Us Email Us According to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, leukemia is a malignant disease (cancer) that originates in a cell in the marrow. It is characterized by the uncontrolled growth of developing marrow cells. There are two major classifications of leukemia: myelogenous or lymphocytic, which can each be acute or chronic. The terms myelogenous or lymphocytic denote the cell type involved. Thus, four major types of leukemia are: acute or chronic myelogenous leukemia and acute or chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Acute leukemia is a rapidly progressing disease that results in the accumulation of immature, functionless cells in the marrow and blood. The marrow often can no longer produce enough normal red and white blood cells and platelets. Anemia, a deficiency of red cells, develops in virtually all leukemia patients. The lack of normal white cells impairs the body's ability to fight infections. A shortage of platelets results in bruising and easy bleeding. Chronic leukemia progresses more slowly and permits greater numbers of more mature, functional cells to be made. In the United States, about 2,000 children and 27,000 adults are diagnosed each year with leukemia. The incidence of leukemia is more common in men and boys than girls and women, and also more likely to occur in white people than black Exposure to high-energy radiation (such as World War II atomic bomb explosions) and intense exposure to low-energy radiation from electromagnetic fields (such as power lines and electric appliances like electric blankets) have been linked to leukemia. Studies are being conducted to further understand this link.

Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is also known as chronic granulocytic leukemia or chronic myeloid leukemia. CML is an overgrowth of granulocytes, a type of white blood cell; its cause is unknown. The disease accounts for about 20 percent of adult leukemias in Western countries. In 2003, approximately 4,300 individuals will be diagnosed with CML, and an estimated 1,700 will die from the disease. In most cases, CML is characterized by a chromosomal abnormality that is known as the Philadelphia chromosome. Treatment usually consists of various chemotherapeutic agents used to disrupt the production of leukemic cells. These treatments may be followed by stem cell transplant.

Dustin Gross, 8, leaps on his home trampoline in Fallon, Nevada. He is now healthy after contracting leukemia when he was 3-years-old. Story Tools HEALTH LIBRARY Health Library Leukemia Cancer: You've got it, now what? YOUR E-MAIL ALERTS Leukemia Cancer Diseases Health or Create your own Manage alerts What is this? FALLON, Nevada (AP) Maybe the first person to realize something terrible was happening to the children of Fallon was a nurse who gives chemotherapy at the community hospital. It was the summer of 2000, and Dr. James Hockenberry had recently diagnosed two cases of childhood leukemia. As it happened, his son Timothy, also a family practitioner, had seen another. These are the tragedies doctors encounter even in small towns, and neither man put them together. Then one day Tim Hockenberry was working in the emergency room, and the infusion nurse, Barbara de Braga, stopped to see him. "She came walking in and closed the door behind her," Hockenberry says. "I thought, 'Oh, gee. Now what.' She said, 'I'm concerned. I think we may have a cancer cluster going on.' I remember the blood drained out of my face and just thinking, 'Oh, my God."'

Study: No link to leukemia cluster in small Nevada town
Federal officials found high amounts of tungsten and arsenic in most residents of Fallon, Nevada, but said the findings are still inconclusive. Story Tools FALLON, Nevada (AP) A federal study of a childhood leukemia cluster in this northern Nevada town found high levels of tungsten and arsenic in most residents but nothing to indicate that either caused any cancers. Based on the results, however, the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has asked the National Institutes of Health to research possible links between tungsten and cancer, scientists said Thursday. "We've learned a lot. But we haven't found the cause of this leukemia cluster," said Dr. Carol Rubin, head of the CDC's research team. Rubin released the study results Thursday at a community meeting attended by about 300 people. Preliminary results, which echoed those announced Thursday, had been released in August. Since 1997, the leukemia in Fallon a farming community of 8,300 and home of the "Top Gun" Navy fighter pilot training base has sickened 13 children and killed three others.

But as the song climbed the charts, the band's keyboardist, Kevin Hearn, was fighting for his life. The symptoms had started the year before. First was the cough that wouldn't go away. It was followed by a loss of appetite, fatigue and bloody noses. "That's when I went crazy," Hearn said. "I never get bloody noses." Hearn went in for a checkup, and when the results came back, his doctor gave him the first hint there could be a serious problem. As Hearn recalls, "She came back and said, 'I want to send you to a specialist to have an ultrasound. If you can call a family member, that will be a good idea.'" That was the day Hearn found out he had leukemia. "When I heard it was a form of cancer, I started to worry and I was in denial," Hearn says. "I asked the doctor when [could] I go back to work. He put his hand on my shoulder and said, 'You might not go back to work. You might not be alive in five months.' I broke down and cried."

Additional ATSDR Studies
The cluster of childhood leukemia cases was brought to the attention of Nevada public health officials in the late summer of 2000, when it was learned that five cases of Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL) had been diagnosed in Churchill County within a few months of each other. The Health Division immediately consulted with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on appropriate steps for an investigation. To date, fifteen children have been diagnosed with ALL and one with Acute Myelocytic Leukemia (AML), all of whom lived in Churchill County for varying lengths of time prior to diagnosis. Dr. Randall Todd, State Epidemiologist, noted that based on cases reported to the Nevada Central Cancer Registry, an average rate of Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia is about 3 childhood cases per 100,000 children.

Experimental drug fights rare leukemia
(CNN) - An experimental cancer therapy is showing promise against a rare form of leukemia, researchers reported Wednesday. Scientists at the National Cancer Institute have been conducting early trials on a drug called BL22 for the treatment of hairy cell leukemia. Their work is published in Thursday's issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. Hairy cell leukemia causes the spleen to swell and prevents the bone marrow from producing enough infection-fighting white blood cells. About 1,000 new cases are reported each year in the United States. The standard treatment is chemotherapy, but not all patients respond. The NCI researchers administered the drug to 16 patients who had not been helped by chemotherapy. Eleven of them went into full remission doctors found no cancer cells or only very few cancer cells in their bodies. Two patients went into partial remission. RESOURCES Learn more about leukemia from the National Cancer Institute "We were totally amazed to see the results," said Dr. Ira Pastan, one of the study authors, "amazed and excited because this is a phase one trial where we started a very low dose and mainly looked for safety of the drug. But as we just increased a little bit we found patients who were beginning to respond and eventually a large fraction of the patients we treated responded."
