Caregivers' Guide for Bone Marrow/Stem Cell TransplantCaregivers' Guide for Bone Marrow/Stem Cell Transplant
Practical Perspectives

There are only four kinds of people in the world:
Those who have been caregivers
Those who are currently caregivers
Those who will be caregivers
Those who will need caregivers.
--Rosalynn Carter, Helping Yourself Help Others

This booklet is dedicated with admiration to BMT caregivers,
past, present and future.

The mission of the National Bone Marrow Transplant Link (nbmtLINK) is to help patients, as well as their caregivers, families and the health care community, meet the many challenges of bone marrow/stem cell transplant by providing vital information and support services.
