My parent is most likely going to be having a bone marrow transplant soon due to cancer…does anyone have any experience with either an ALLO or AUTO? Has anyone had a parent or close relative go through this? What were the results?

may god be with you and your family and give you the strength through this difficult part of life.
My dad did auto (recieved his own stem cells) its been about 5 months and is doing great his hair has grown back and is currently receiving chemo 1 month down 3 to go for what you can basically say maintenance no cancer cells have been detected in his recent Screening
It was very difficult for him and a long painful process all we have done is been supportive he survived colon cancer and is defeating bone cancer ! I truly believe he has super powers ! At the end of the day place him and your family in the hands of god and let it be his will ! Have faith and hope !

I am so sorry to hear about your parent and their cancer diagnosis. I do have some experience with it as my brother had one (well, actually 2) this past Fall. My sister was the donor as I was only a half match and my brother couldn’t because of the chemo he’d already had. There are many, many people who do well with the transplant, and that is what you should focus on. My brother was very sick and the rigorous chemo they had given to him prior to the transplant had debilitated his body so much that he did not have much hope going into the transplant. Unfortunately, the transplants were never able to take hold for him, and now god has my brother who was an extremely gifted invasive cardiologist. Not a day goes by that I don’t mourn the loss. I just have to figure that God needed him more. I will pray for you and your family to have a better outcome. We watched most people on the transplant floor get better and stronger each day, so that is the outcome you must focus on for your parent.
