Book Prepares Children for BMT Procedures

A new book, Me and My Marrow: A Kid’s 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.
