A few days after your preliminary health check, you will receive a letter with your results.
Somewhere in the world, a patient awaiting your donation will now be prepared for the transplant. The patient will begin the preparation or “conditioning” to be able to accept your donor cells, receiving rigorous treatment including chemotherapy and/or radiation to prepare for the transplant.
At this point, there will be no alternative for the patient: they depend on the transplant and the donation of your bone marrow or blood stem cells. If all goes well, the transplant will succeed and the patient will develop a new, healthy immune system.
