Budget:

Category:

Population Served:
General Public/Unspecified

Program Description:

The National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP) is dedicated to making transplant possible for all patients in need. Be The Match Foundation® supports our work by raising funds to help patients who need an unrelated donor bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant. Without this support, some patients will not receive the transplant they need. Many families find that their insurance does not cover all the costs that come with a transplant. Costs such as the search for a marrow donor or umbilical cord blood, travel and lodging when the transplant center is far from home, prescription co-pays and many other transplant-related costs may not be covered by insurance. In 2010, more than 2,000 patients received assistance, and more than $2.5 million was paid to qualifying patients through the Be The Match Foundation's Patient Assistance Program.
