Coins for Life

Small change can make a big difference for cancer patients.

The Bone Marrow Foundation’s financial assistance — and yours — helps children and adults fight for life. You can make a difference in the lives of cancer patients by giving and collecting spare change in these cardboard collection boxes.

Create a Coins for Life drive for life in your home, offices, schools, grocery stores, shops or any venue that you are willing to supervise. When the boxes are full, simply send The Bone Marrow Foundation a check or money order — or use a credit card online — for the amount that you have collected.

The Bone Marrow Foundation provides financial aid, education and emotional support to children and adults facing cancer and other life threatening diseases. We rely 100% on private donations to provide vital services for bone marrow and stem cell transplant patients and their families.

“You are a wonderful resource for families and patients.  Thank you for the financial support during a difficult time in our lives.”
Steven and Heather D.

“The Bone Marrow Foundation is wonderful. They kept us afloat.”
Jasmine’s mother, Kim James
