It seems the 25th anniversary of Nebraska Medical Center is going to be successful. On the occasion of the bone marrow and stem cell transplant program, a cancer patient Alan Overbaugh will begin the intensive cancer-treatment procedure.

His oncologist sent him to Nebraska for a stem cell transplant. The doctor said chemotherapy wasn’t enough and that Overbaugh needed a transplant to face a better chance of having a five-year remission. His chances of going into remission stand at 40 to 50 percent.

It can be added that the Medical center has so far been successful in more than 4,000 transplants during the past 25 years.
