Caring for your spiritual health during illness and treatment
Spirituality is very personal and unique. For some people, feeling close to a higher power is an incredible source of strength and support. You may find that with diagnosis and treatment of a serious illness your sense of spirituality has changed. Be The Match and Corporate Chaplains of America now offer free, confidential, non-denominational support for you and your loved ones. Thanks to our generous partners Garheng and Melissa Kong for making this important program available, providing holistic support in navigating the transplant journey.
