For the donor of the bone marrow the bone marrow transplant is pretty safe.

The most serious risk to the donor of the bone marrow during a bone marrow transplant is is from the anesthesia that is used to put the donor under while the bone marrow transplant is being performed.

Usually though it's pretty safe and nothing to worry about.
