Bone Marrow Transplant?

My mom has Stage 4 Non-Hodgkin's T-Cell Lymphoma. She's going to have to do a strong chemo this time. Her doctor told her, because of which she'll need a bone marrow transplant. They want to use her bone marrow first, and if that doesn't work, test her kids and siblings. What I'm wondering is, if she has the cancer in her bone marrow, how can they use her bone marrow? Wouldn't that be putting the cancer back in her?

A bone marrow transplant is a procedure to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. There are three types of transplantation:
Autologous bone marrow transplant: The term auto means self. Stem cells are removed from you before you receive high-dose chemotherapy or radiation treatment. I think your mother is given this transplation.
Allogeneic bone marrow transplant: The term allo means other. Stem cells are removed from another person, called a donor.
Umbilical cord blood transplant: This is a type of allogeneic transplant. Stem cells are removed from a newborn baby's umbilical cord right after birth.
So dont worry it is a type of transplantation and treatment.
