Answer by  Bobinski (1652)

Children can develop all types of blood disorders. Some are malignant such as acute lymphoblastic leukemia. There are more non-malignant disorders than malignant. Sickle cell and hemophilia are inherited disorders. Anemia is a fairly common blood disorder children can get. Thalassemia is when the body can't make enough hemoglobin. This is also a genetic blood disorder.
