Patient Support

The decision for your child to have a bone marrow or stem cell transplant will launch your entire family on a journey that involves many life changes. The support services at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and Seattle Children’s are here for you and your child.

Children who need a transplant and their parents, siblings, family and friends will face many challenges along the way. Understanding your child’s disease, as well as the tests and treatments your child will have, presents one type of challenge. The disruption to normal routines and family life can require a big adjustment. Worry about your child’s health may be overwhelming at times.
