“I recently contacted the Bone Marrow & Cancer Foundation about the upcoming SCT between myself and my brother who is fighting leukemia. I would like to thank your team for providing information and being ready to answer the many unanswered questions I had. This has been a very frustrating and scary time for our family, and we appreciate the ability to reach out and speak to someone.”
