The Bone Marrow Foundation
The Bone Marrow Foundation was founded in 1992 with a single vital goal: to improve the quality of life for children and adults who are undergoing transplantation as a life saving treatment for leukemia, Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphomas, multiple myeloma, aplastic anemia, severe combined immunodeficiency, neuroblastoma and many other cancers and genetic disorders.
The foundation is the only organization of its kind that does not limit assistance to a specific disease, type of transplant or age range. All of the foundation’s services are offered free to patients and their families.
The Bone Marrow Foundation is guided by a medical advisory board of nationally recognized physicians in the field of transplantation. Our Patient Aid Program provides vital financial assistance for donor searches, compatibility testing, bone marrow or stem cell collection, cord blood banking, medications, medical equipment, home and child care services, housing, transportation and other patient needs. SupportLine unites patients and families with their peers. Ask the Expert enables confidential communication with members of the medical advisory board so patients and families can get the answers they need. The foundation publishes medical and educational handbooks to assist patients and their families in obtaining resources and information regarding the transplant procedure and all aspects of follow-up care.
The Bone Marrow Foundation supports patients, their families and caregivers every step of the way during a bone marrow, stem cell or cord blood transplant. No transplant patient should ever feel alone.
