Peer Connect


Our Peer Connect program can connect you with a trained volunteer who’s been there. No matter where you are in the transplant process, past recipients and caregivers like you are available to talk by phone or email, to listen and share tips based on their own experience.

Patient and Caregiver Emotional Support (PACES)  


PACES offers you and your loved ones free one-on-one support from a social worker. We can help you manage and cope with illness, treatment, the blood and marrow transplant (BMT) process and survivorship. This telephone-based support program offers flexible options for treatment-based support, including regular phone calls with a social worker, or one time calls to discuss options for support in your local community.

Be The Match offers grants to help qualified patients cover costs pre and post-transplant including, but not limited to: family typing, dental work, housing, food, gas and copays.

Fertility Preservation Grant 


For eligible warriors, we may be able to provide financial assistance to preserve your fertility prior to transplant. We aim to help warriors build their family post-transplant.

Clinical Trials 


For many people with blood cancers or blood disorders, treatment through clinical trials provides hope and a potential cure. But they’re not always easy to find or understand. We can help you or your loved one find and join clinical trials.
