A blood and marrow transplant (BMT), replaces your child’s bone marrow system with healthy blood stem cells. Your child may need a BMT because they have too few blood stem cells, their blood cells do not work properly or it may be part of a cancer treatment. Learn how a BMT works, the reasons for having a BMT, where the blood stem cells for the transplant come from, the types of medicines your child will have to take and about the various medical procedures involved.
