BMT Recipient: Ryan Compton, age 8 - 'Thank you for saving my life.' A few days before her 5-year-old son Ryan was to undergo a bone marrow transplant from a donor they had never met, Maggie Compton made a print of Ryan's tiny hand on a blank greeting card, which she planned to send to his donor with her own thank-you letter. Watch Ryan's story and his reunion with his donor. For more information on City of Hope's Bone Marrow/Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation program, go to: http://www.cityofhope.org/hct
