age for bone marrow transplant and diagnose?
i was wondering at what age they will do a bone marrow transplant? also what age will they diagnose someone with lukemia? and finally do they do they transplant right away or do they do stuff before they do it. oh and if it is a young child must the person donating be a young child?
thanks in advance! this is a school project?

Leukemia is diagnosed even in children. They have extensive chemotherapy IV to kill all their natural immunity. Then the marrow is given like a blood transfusion. The donor can be any age, but also must meet some strict requirements.

Your appropriate guess is with the interior sight economic catastrophe of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. an determination is the yank maximum cancers Society. Your nearest college medical institution that does BMT could have social workers and others who're very useful in working with victims/families to get financing.
