Bone Marrow Transplant is a medical procedure performed to replace bone marrow that is damaged or destroyed by disease, infection, or chemotherapy. This procedure involves transplanting blood stem cells, which travel to the bone marrow where they produce new blood cells and promote the growth of new marrow.

Every four minutes, they diagnose someone with
-Leukemia
-Lymphoma
-Sickle cell or
-Any other cancers and genetic diseases.
Both the disease and the diagnosis can be overwhelming.

For many, the only hope of a cure is through a Bone Marrow Transplant. This was the case of Joe. Joe is a 24-year-old man from Nigeria.
He was unhappy because he was sick all the time, causing himself and his loved ones to be unhappy.

Joe’s medical history is similar to that of many individuals with sickle cell disease (SCD). He has experienced severe pain since a young age, frequently sought care in the emergency department (ED), and has received numerous blood transfusions (when healthy blood is given to a patient through one of their blood vessels). 

Like many individuals with SCD, Joe’s pain has been dismissed in the ED several times and he had to explain to them step by step what’s going on, what he needs.

What went on through Joe’s mind during these frustrating experiences? “It was just pain. Like please make it stop. There was nothing else he thought about except, please make it stop, please hurry.

One day, Joe was just scrolling through twitter and he found Lifetrusty.

They are in partnership with Manipal Hospital, which started the Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) facility in 2004 and can today look back with pride at its achievements.

Lifetrusty prepared Joe for a stem cell transplant by

  1. Receiving chemotherapy to kill the diseased cells and malfunctioning bone marrow.
  2. Then, the transplanted blood stem cells were put into the bloodstream.
  3. The transplanted stem cells found their way to the marrow, where ideally they produce new healthy blood cells.

And that was it! From feeling pain all the time to searching for a donor, undergoing the Transplant, and making his way through recovery, Joe has never been happier.
