Providing patients one-on-one support from day one
Our patient services coordinators help patients and their families answer questions about their disease and transplant, understand the donor search process, navigate insurance coverage and financial options, and prepare for life after transplant. Our goal is to help patients get what they need, when they need it.

Helping patients afford treatment
A gift to Be The Match can support a patient and family going through the transplant process to offer healing and hope.
Not everyone can afford the life-saving treatment they need. Costs such as the search for a marrow donor, complex matching, 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. Be The Match is dedicated to making transplant possible for all patients – but we can’t do it alone. We rely on generous contributions to help patients receive the transplant they need.
We offer financial aid programs to help patients pay for the cost of a donor search and for some post-transplant expenses so they can focus on healing and recovery. In 2012, more than 1,600 patients received assistance, and more than $2.5 million was given to qualifying patients through the Be The Match Patient Assistance Program. Lives were changed and saved because of patient assistance funds and the generosity of our supporters.
“Thank you very much for finding me a bone marrow match. It’s good to know that I’ll be around for a while. My parents and I also appreciate the services you have to educate us on the process such as the books, a phone counselor and the website. The Transplant Support Assistance Grant being provided to me was a nice surprise considering the increased expenses of living out of town and my parents (who are my caregivers) weekly commute to different states. All of you have been wonderful in helping us through this process and I hope that you keep it up!”
