A stem cell transplant for pediatric patients is the only curative option for many bone marrow failure diseases. Dr. David Jacobsohn of Children's Hospital gives a thorough presentation for patients and their families to understand the long term effects of this lifesaving treatment including secondary cancers and fertility issues. This is a "must watch" session for anyone who has undergone a transplant as a pediatric patient or for those who are considering this treatment option.
