Chemo is often combined (in australia anyway) with a complete BMTransplant 
and can improve prognosis significantly. The problem is patients tend to be 
immunosuppressed (weak immune system). Which increases the chances of 
infection by organisms such as MRSA ( Multi Resistant Golden Staph), 
Acinetobactor, or VRE (Vancomycin Resistant Enterococci). Bone marrow 
transplants have significantly decreased (in terms of risk over the past ten 
years) here we also combine it with a stem cell infusion (depending on the 
type of carcinoma/sarcoma/lymphoma...). This has a great use I wish you all 
the best with Heather.
