Imagine you’ve been diagnosed with a life-threatening blood disorder.

Now imagine that your only hope for a cure is a bone marrow transplant, but you don’t have a matched donor in your family.

Your life now lies in the hands of a complete stranger.

This is the story of 70% of blood disorder patients needing a bone marrow transplant.

Our programs help these patients increase their likelihood of finding a  donor match, pay for the care they need, and feel supported throughout their treatment.

Financial Assistance

We provide financial assistance for patients and patient families impacted by life threatening blood disorders such as Aplastic Anemia and Sickle Cell Anemia. Financial support assists with gas and parking for hospital visits, co-pays, prescriptions, meals, lodging and medical bills not covered by insurance. Funding provides relief and hope to patients and families.
