Summary

We are expecting more than half a million long-term survivors by 2020, and this is a time to implement strategies to help the people all over the globe who live with, through, and beyond stem cell transplantation. Sharing knowledge of long-term survivors’ experiences will build the long-term survivors’ quality of life even healthier.
