From Jim Engelman MD, both a HSCT survivor and doctor


"This book is such a wonderful education for all of us. Thank you for putting in the work. I'm sure this project was quite a chore."

"The GVHD book that you sent is wonderful! What a great resource for patients and caregivers. It is so thorough and detailed. A great job done by all."
