The Advantages of Bone Marrow Transplantation for Children

Bone marrow transplantation is an effective therapy for children suffering from diseases such as Leukemia, Lymphomas, Aplastic anemia, Sickle cell disease, metabolic diseases, and other cancers.

Bone marrow is the soft, spongy tissue found inside of bones and it is responsible for the storage and development of the majority of the body’s blood cells. The goal of bone marrow transplants is to transfuse healthy bone marrow cells while also eliminating unhealthy bone marrow.

Children suffering from cancers must undergo intense rounds or chemotherapy and radiation, and during these procedures bone marrow becomes damaged or destroyed. Therefore bone marrow transplantation is an effective treatment method because it replaces diseased, nonfunctioning bonne marrow with healthy, functioning marrow. It also helps to restore the bone marrow’s function after high doses of radiation therapy.

This year the Canadian Chamber of Commerce Taiwan is honored to be assisting MacKay Memorial Hospital in opening a new bone marrow transplantation ward in the Children’s Wing of the hospital by raising funds through its 3rd Annual Maple Ball Charity Gala on November 4, 2017.

With the help of our sponsors and attendees, we are so pleased to be able to assist MacKay Memorial Hospital in funding for its new bone marrow transplantation ward for children who are suffering from life-threatening diseases.
