My 23 month old daughter, after not responding to the hydroxyurea is going to have a bone marrow transplant in August. Her 4 year old brother is a perfect match. I can not find any people who have been through this type of transplant ( meaning thalassemia and sibling match) and am looking for someone with experience or info?

I would suggest taking advantage of our partner's site, and go to the BMT Testimonials page.

This is allogeneic bone marrow transplant and my daughter (21 Months Old) went through this process in March 2013 and she is under recovery now a days. Few things to remember prior to transplant.

Selection of Transplant Center (Very Important)
Regular chelation therapy.
Pre transplant evaluation (Classification or Risk Factor)

If you need any other information you may contact me at any time at faheem_sultan@hotmail.com or +971502114905
Best of Luck.
