    Patients get cancer from transplant

    This is so sad. Two have already died of the same type of lymphoma that was not diagnosed until after the transplants. Two others are undergoing chemo treatments.

    This is very sad. Some types of pediatric cancer are very hard to diagnose
    but you would have thought with all of this medical attention they would have had better answers, sooner.

    My DD cannot even donate blood because she had cancer as a kid, and she is cured...

    They said that type of cancer reacts well to treatment. Gosh, if they had diagnosed the cancer while he was alive, could they have saved his life?

    This hits too close to home for me. My hubby had a transplant recently and although he had undergone vigorous testing for cancer himself before they would consider him a candidate for transplant, the donor died suddenly of a stroke and was not screened for cancer. Now it's a waiting game.
