Hi there
I am 43 with T-Cell ALL and will also be having a bone marrow transplant next month at Royal Perth Hospital in Western Australia. Just wanted to say good luck and keep your spirits high :-)

Hi Kerry. My niece has T-Cell ALL. She is now undergoing the maintenance phase of chemotherapy. Can you share with me what preparations you underwent before you and your physician decided that you were ready for bone marrow transplant? By the way, why was bone marrow transplant considered instead of peripheral blood stem cell transplant? Thanks and good luck on your forthcoming procedure. - Charlie
