  1. That was a very informative and interesting podcast. Both doctors really were able to break GVHD down to a level any layman could understand. I learned a great deal. My husband passed away three years ago at the age of 72 from a very rare type of leukemia called CMML. He was afraid to go through a transplant at his age. It is so encouraging to know that people over 70 are having transplants now and surviving. Thank you for an excellent podcast.
