Introduction

The prospect of a bone marrow transplant (BMT) brings emotional stress for the patient and their family. In writing this booklet the CGD Society and parents of children who have had a BMT 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 here helpful.
