A new book, Me and My Marrow: A Kids Guide to Bone Marrow Transplants,
helps guide children with cancer through the transplant procedure.
The book was inspired by 13-year-old Christina Cuzzone, of
Northbrook, Illinois, who was diagnosed with leukemia at age 9 and
underwent a BMT. After recovering from the transplant, Christina
recognized the need for a book to help other children.
She shared her story with a neighbor employed by Fujisawa Healthcare,
Inc., a local pharmaceutical company, and the company worked with her
to create the book. It is being distributed to transplant centers
nationwide and on the Internet at meandmymarrow.com.
