At the Foundation, we often hear “I wish I could do something to help.” The Bone Marrow Foundation’s Lifeline Project is a social media outreach so that donors can make a direct and instant difference in the life of a child or adult undergoing a bone marrow or stem cell transplant.
It’s easy. Look at the pictures, read the stories, and donate directly to one (or more) of the patients to help meet their uncovered financial needs during transplant. Donate a little or donate a lot – every dollar makes a difference.
How often can you say that you saved someone’s life? By being a Lifeline to one of these patients you can honestly say you have. Without financial support from individuals like you, many patients would not be able to afford the ancillary costs involved in receiving a transplant (such as medication, donor searches and testing, assistive devices, housing, transportation, childcare, clean living environment, and much more). Donating through the Lifeline Project enables patients to afford the transplant that will very possibly save their life – it is that simple.
