Ever considered becoming a bone marrow or blood stem cell donor? Follow this true story of a former NCI employee, Serena Marshall, as she takes you through her blood stem cell donation experience at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda, MD.

Bone marrow transplantation (BMT) and peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT) are most commonly used in the treatment of cancers like leukemia and lymphoma to restore stem cells that have been destroyed by high doses of chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy. For more information on the use of BMT and PBSCT, see http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/fa...

If you are interested in becoming a donor, contact The National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP), a federally funded nonprofit organization that maintains an international registry of volunteers willing to be donors at http://www.marrow.org .
