Peer Support On Call Program

“Peer Support on Call Program” is a free service offered by the National Bone Marrow Transplant Link. Emotional support is available through one-on-one conversations with trained peer support volunteers who are bone marrow/stem cell transplant survivors, caregivers and marrow donors. Reassurance, understanding, and support when you need them the most.

If you would like to request a phone call from a peer support volunteer, please call our office at 800-LINK-BMT (800-546-5268).

Telephone Education and Support for Patients Coping with Chronic Graft Versus Host Disease

Groups are held twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. The next group is being held May 3, 10, 17, 24, 2016. Please call the nbmtLINK to register for the group!

Chronic Graft versus Host Disease (cGVHD) is one of the most difficult long-term complications following allogeneic transplant. It is associated with “decreased quality of life, impaired functional status, and the continued need for immuno-suppressive medication and difficulties that arise from this need.” (National Institutes of Health).

Celebrate Your Second Birthday!
