Donor: Hi. Are they planning autologous BMT (she donates blood stem cells to herself) or allogeneic BMT (someone else is the blood stem cell donor)? If allogeneic, you may be a suitable donor since you're her child. Otherwise, after the BMT, she could use your help in all sorts of ways including love & emotional, errands, help around the house, etc. Good luck to her!
