According to the National Cancer Institute, acute myelogenous leukemia is a "cancer of the blood and bone marrow" and it is the most common form of acute leukemia in adults. 
In a statement obtained by Fox News Digital after the comedian's death, it was revealed that Reubens had privately battled cancer for years.
"Last night we said farewell to Paul Reubens, an iconic American actor, comedian, writer and producer whose beloved character Pee-wee Herman delighted generations of children and adults with his positivity, whimsy and belief in the importance of kindness," his longtime rep said in a statement.

"Paul bravely and privately fought cancer for years with his trademark tenacity and wit. A gifted and prolific talent, he will forever live in the comedy pantheon and in our hearts as a treasured friend and man of remarkable character and generosity of spirit," she added.
In a personal statement that was shared after his death, Reubens apologized for not revealing his health struggles and expressed his love for his fans.
"Please accept my apology for not going public with what I've been facing the last six years," he wrote in a statement on his social media pages.

He continued, "I have always felt a huge amount of love and respect from my friends, fans and supporters. I have loved you all so much and enjoyed making art for you."
Reubens created the character of Pee-wee Herman after joining the Los Angeles improv troupe The Groundlings in the late 1970s. In 1981, he debuted "The Pee-wee Herman Show" at the Roxy Theater on the Sunset Strip, performing for children at weekly matinées and adults during a midnight show.
"The Pee-wee Herman Show" became a hit and gained an even greater following nationwide when it began airing as a special on HBO. 

Due to its success on the small screen, Warner Bros. was interested in taking Pee-wee to the silver screen with the movie that was Tim Burton's directorial debut, "Pee-wee's Big Adventure," in 1985. The film became a box-office success, grossing more than $40 million and gaining a cult following. Reubens went on to reprise his role as Pee-wee in the 1988 sequel "Big Top Pee-wee," which was a critical and box-office disappointment.

In 1986, Reubens launched his CBS live-action children's television show, "Pee-wee's Playhouse," which ran for five seasons and won 22 Emmy Awards. Reuben himself was nominated for 14 Emmy Awards, winning two.
Aside from his work as Pee-wee, Reubens appeared in several other television shows and movies, including "30 Rock," "Everybody Loves Raymond," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Life During Wartime," "Gotham," "The Blacklist" and "What We Do in the Shadows."
