Season 13 Trailer : The Side Effects of Bone Marrow/Stem Cell Transplant Including GVHD

Season 13 will focus on side effects of bone marrow and stem cell transplant, including GVHD. As always, you’ll hear expert advice from professionals, as well as stories from patients who are open and honest about their experiences. We’ll also have advice from caregivers, who are also a key part of the journey, and who also must take care of themselves physically, mentally, and for some, spiritually.


Navigating the Transition Home with Dr. Navneet Majhail

Dr. Navneet Majhail, the Physician-in-Chief of Blood Cancers at the Sarah Cannon Transplant and Cellular Therapy Program, highlights the complexities of managing care transitions from specialized treatment centers back to patients’ local communities. This process is crucial because it involves highly specialized care that is available only at transplant centers, making it a significant challenge for patients who do not reside in those cities. The journey doesn’t end at the treatment center; once patients return home, the role of the caregivers and community doctors becomes paramount in managing ongoing care and potential complications.
