What is the National Bone Marrow Transplant Link?

A second chance at life is our first priority

A History of the nbmtLINK
Established in 1992, the National Bone Marrow Transplant Link (nbmtLINK) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to serving individuals before, during, and after a bone marrow or stem cell transplant.  Myra Jacobs founded the nbmtLINK in response to the plight of a woman, Sandy, living in her area.

The mission of the National Bone Marrow Transplant Link is to help patients, caregivers, and families cope with the social and emotional challenges of bone marrow/stem cell transplant from diagnosis through survivorship by providing vital information and personalized support services.
