Sorry to hear about your friend.
If it is leukemia then the primary treatment is chemotherapy and if required stem cell transplant. Please follow the recommendations of your oncologist.

Leukemia are of many types.
Your friend is suffering from first stage leukemia.
Chemotherapy is the first line of treatment.
If relapses are there then stem cell therapy, bonemarrow transplant are the options if the suitable donor is there.
Hope for the best with chemotherapy treatment.
