Dear Angie
We do bone marrow transplants in SA - if you let me know in which area you are, I can refer you to an oncologist for a second opinion or just maybe for some info?

He is in Cape Town, and is currently being treated at Groote Schuur Hospital. He would like a second opinion, so if you could help me it would be greatly appreciated. What does the autologous stem cell procedure involve?
