A bone marrow transplant is a medical procedure that can be used to cure diseases once thought incurable especially certain cancers of the blood. Since its first successful use in the late 1960s thousands of people have undergone bone marrow transplantation. Today, though, most “bone marrow transplants” are actually stem cell transplants with stem cells either donated by a matched donor or collected from the patient’s own blood. In this program we take an in depth look at how these transplants work to treat diseases like Leukemia, Multiple Myeloma, Hodgkin’s Disease and Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. We will explore the different types of transplants, talk with patients who have had these transplants and hear their advice to others who may be considering this potentially life-saving procedure.
