Bone marrow transplantation – a guide for families

We know that BMT can seem a big leap into the unknown so the CGD Society and parents of children who have had a BMT have worked together to share with you advice and the things to think about before, during and after a BMT. Although parents had different experiences during their child’s BMT, we found there were lots of common themes. We hope you find the information provided helpful.
