Unrelated Donor Transplant
For a bone marrow transplant, doctors always prefer a donor from the family of a patient. The chances of finding a match for bone marrow become higher, but it is not always that a family member matches with the receiver. According to data, almost 30 percent do not find within close family. In that case, doctors look out for a matching bone marrow outside the family.
