The Lifeline Fund

The Lifeline Fund provides financial support to individuals who meet our eligibility requirements.

The individuals who seek the BMCF’s support often lack the financial resources necessary to afford the often overlooked living and ancillary expenses that can present considerable financial obstacles or prohibit the transplant altogether. Funding from the Bone Marrow & Cancer Foundation’s Lifeline Fund helps to cover the myriad costs associated with transplants, such as donor searches, compatibility testing, bone marrow harvesting, medications, home and child care services, medical equipment, transportation, cord blood banking and housing. Health insurance often does not cover these vital support services, and many patients cannot afford them on their own.

The application for the Lifeline Fund requires information about diagnosis and treatment, in addition to other details. If you are interested in participating in the Lifeline Fund, please carefully review the guidelines and download the application form, and give it to your physician, nurse coordinator or social worker to complete.

“Thank you for the check that you gave me for co-pays/meals while my daughter was hospitalized. She spent greater than 80 days in the hospital due to her bone marrow transplant. The money you sent greatly helped with meals and bills I had during that time and allowed me to focus more on her and her wellbeing. I am so grateful for your help!”
