Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Shaffer, a nurse and former bone marrow transplant (BMT) patient, here describes this promising procedure, which offers a weapon in treating the 29,000 cases of leukemia and one million cases of other cancers diagnosed each year in the United States. By discussing every aspect of a BMT in lay terms, by covering everything patients and their families need to know, and by explaining what to expect while undergoing treatment, Schaefer demystifies this complicated procedure. Stressing the need for current information and participation in one's own care, Shaffer recommends learning as much as possible and suggests many resources such as the National Bone Marrow Transplant Link and the American Cancer Society. If read in conjunction with Susan Stewart's Bone Marrow Transplants: A Book of Basics for Patients (Bone Marrow Transplant Newsletter, 1992), this book provides valuable support for patients and families. Highly recommended.-- Janet M. Coggan, Univ. of Florida Libs., Gainesville
