Who We Are
If a stem cell, bone marrow or cord blood transplant is in your future...
chances are you're feeling frightened and overwhelmed. I know how you feel. When I learned I needed a bone marrow transplant in 1998, I'd never heard of bone marrow transplants, and had no idea what bone marrow or stem cells were or why they were important.
AllAcute lymphoblastic leukemia. the medical terms used to describe the treatment were new to me, and often I was so lost I couldn't even figure out the right questions to ask! After my transplant, I met other survivors and learned my experience was not unique.
That is why I created BMT infoNet - to give patients and survivors a place they can turn to for accurate, easy-to-understand information.
Our publications and web site are carefully reviewed by leading medical experts for accuracy. Our volunteers and staff understand how you feel - many of us have been in your shoes and are ready to help you.
Since 1990 more than 100,000 patients and survivors have turned to BMT InfoNet for help. I hope we have an opportunity to make your transplant experience - before, during and after - a bit easier as well.
