If someone you love is having a bone marrow or cord blood transplant (also called a BMT), you can be there to help. Most transplant centers require transplant patients to have a caregiver to help them through the process. A caregiver advocates for the patient, helps manage finances and other household tasks and provides emotional support. When you become a caregiver, you play an important role in your loved one's treatment and recovery.
