In brief: Interrupted
The regular schooling will be interrupted for several months to a year perhaps or could be a bit longer sometimes- while receiving chemotherapy and +/- if transplantation is required.
After everything is completed and if complete cure is achieved- and no major complication from the treatment, he should/would be able to resume regular schooling.

In brief: ALL
After the initial induction phase most often can continue schooling if treatment is uneventful.
