Harvesting Bone Marrow

Many of you have been asking all about the bone marrow transplant procedure that Heather will be having on Wednesday. Questions like:

  • Is it surgery for Heather?
  • How do the get the bone marrow from the donor?
  • What is the bone marrow transplant procedure?

I’ve attached a brief  5-minute video on how they get bone marrow from the donor. If you look closely, the presenter holds a bag of bone marrow up as a display. The rest of the video is about harvesting bone marrow from a donor.
