No. They are not removing bones. Donating bone marrow is a simple process and in most cases isn’t much more complicated than donating blood.

Nicholas was an extremely bright young man who cared about everyone. He had always been the healthy one in the family until he was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma in November 2016. He bravely went through a year of very intense chemo and radiation to rid his body of the cancer. Only a few weeks after his last session, he was told that the treatment had caused chromosomal cross overs which would turn into full blown leukemia. His only chance at survival was a bone marrow transplant. Being the child of a Caucasian American father and a latin American mother, finding a match was virtually impossible. The doctors had to fall back and use his mother’s stem cells, which by nature were at least a 50% match. The transplant went well and he looked like he had a great future. He took his ACTs, got a 100% on both math and science which landed him a full ride scholarship at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. A year and a half after having his bone marrow transplant, he developed GVHD (Graft Verses Host Disease) and his blood began attacking his lungs and he passed away.
