Pretty good.: Family members usually have a pretty good chance to be a good match. But with the availability of Bone marrow registry, its also easy to find a match out in the community. If someone needs a bone marrow transplant, the physician will look for the best match available in the family & the community. The final decision is based upon the patients medical condition, health status & donor availability.
