Stricken with a potentially life-threatening rare blood disease, Dr. Biro chooses to undergo a potentially curative, though potentially life-threatening allogeneic stem cell transplant, despite conflicting medical advise. Told with candor and humor, he shares his experiences of the transplant process. From the perspective of a patient who is also a doctor, he includes both the physical and the emotional impact of the transplant.
