Everyone wants to do something to help other people with illnesses in any way they can. Some people donate money but others donate something even better.

Bone marrow transplant has been used successfully to treat diseases such as leukemia’s, lymphomas, aplastic anemia, immune deficiency disorders, and some solid tumor cancers since 1968.
