22. Stem Cell Transplant

My daughter had an autologous (means self donated) stem cell transplant in 2016 as a treatment for Scleroderma. During the intense chemo time when they were taking her white cells down, she slept a LOT and we just remained by her side and gave her soup or a drink if she awakened! When they were ready to actually reintroduce her stem cells into her body, the process only took about 17 minutes but it was all life-saving! Thank you Lord for advanced in science that make these miracles possible! I will be praying for your son until we hear he's on his way home! Best of luck to you.
