Cancer is one of the leading causes of death globally, claiming ten million lives in 2020. Leukaemia, also known as blood cancer, is a condition in which the growth of white blood cells occurs uncontrollably. This study aims to simulate the mathematical model for the dynamics of leukaemia growth. The simulation shows that when immunotherapy is not present (B = 0), the number of infected and cancer cells is massive. As immunotherapy is applied and present (B > 0), the concentration of immune cells surges in the blood therefore the number of infected cells and cancer cells declines because the external re-infusion rate of immune cells increases in the blood, and the number of infected cells decreases due to the interaction between cancer cells and immune cells.
