books for bone marrow/stem cell transplant patients and families





The Blood & Marrow Transplant Information Network publishes and sells two fantastic books by Susan K. Stewart (a former transplant patient herself) about Stem Cell and Bone Marrow Tranplants. They are titled Bone Marrow and Blood Stem Cell Transplants: A Guide for Patients and Autologous Stem Cell Transplants: A Handbook for Patients. These books, I think, are wonderful, easy-to-read resources for patients and their families. They review a number of issues important to someone undergoing a transplant or to the families of a transplant patient, such as choosing a transplant center, infection, emotional and pscychological considerations, nutrition, caregiving, insurance and fundraising, and long-term survivorship issues.
