Mission
The Bone Marrow Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life for bone marrow, stem cell, and cord blood transplant patients and their families by providing vital financial assistance, emotional support, and comprehensive educational programs.
Program Description
*Lifeline Fund provides financial support to help cover the costs of transplant-related expenses such as the costs of donor searches, medications, home and child care services, medical equipment, transportation, cord blood banking, housing costs and other expenses associated with the transplant. Health insurance often does not cover these vital support services, and many patients cannot afford them on their own.

*One-to-One Funds enable patients to reach out to family, friends, and social networks for financial support. A One-to-One Fund can be created in minutes and promoted through social media or by more traditional means. All contributions to One-to-One Funds are tax-deductible and do not affect a patient’s medical insurance or benefits.

*Scholarship Grants help make educational aspirations a reality for bone marrow, stem cell or cord blood transplant survivors. Grants help cover tuition fees, academic supplies, and educational homebound equipment. Grants are available to students who have received a transplant and are enrolled in either a full-time or part-time educational program.

*Clinical Care Counseling provides confidential individual and family supportive counseling, financial guidance and resource referrals. Counselors are available in person or by telephone to help patients, family members and caregivers navigate all stages of the transplant journey.

*Ask the Expert enables individuals to anonymously pose questions concerning transplantation and to have them answered by transplant specialists.

*SupportLine links transplant patients and their families with volunteers who have gone through the transplant experience.

*Survivorship Support Group provides post-transplant patients with weekly telephone or in-person meetings, to share experiences and draw support from others as they continue to navigate their transplant journey. Medical & Educational Handbooks provide comprehensive transplant information and resources to assist patients, family members and caregivers.
