There's so much more to transplantation than surgery.

In this podcast hear from people affected by bone marrow and organ donation in their, often emotional and always eye-opening, stories.

This podcast would be nothing without the wonderful people opening up about their experiences so a huge thank you to all the guests - you're all so inspiring.

A little over ten years ago Melissa went from the picture of health to needing four blood or platelet transfusions every week. She was just 30 years old. Melissa needed a bone marrow transplant and Doug, a stranger living across the Atlantic, donated some of his stem cells and saved her life.
