BMT Resources

BMT Information Resources

It is beyond the scope of this website to go into any further detail about the medical aspects of BMT, and thus we will not attempt to duplicate other excellent resources . For more specific information on  BMT, please consult with your child’s own transplant team.  SCCA patient families will be given the Preparing for Transplant handbook when their child’s BMT workup begins.

There are now many  BMT educational resources available, which you may find helpful.
