Celebrate Your Second Birthday!

Contact the nbmtLINK at info@nbmtlink to receive a specially designed card that recognizes you and your caregiver on your transplant anniversary. Since survivorship issues, both physical and emotional, often continue for years after transplant, this program focuses attention on the ongoing needs of BMT survivors and their caregivers, creating a community that understands the importance of this “second birthday.” If you or someone you love would like to be recognized, please contact Cindy Goldman at 800-546-5268 or email cindygoldman@nbmtlink.org

Reassurance, Understanding, and Support when you
need them the most.

“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. Since they have been through the transplant experience themselves, they understand the patient’s and caregiver’s feelings and can provide an empathetic point of view. For patients and caregivers, peer support is only a phone call away. If you would like to request a phone call from a peer support volunteer, please click here or call our office at 800-LINK-BMT (800-546-5268).

Insights e-community

Insights e-communityJoin this e-community exclusively for young adult transplant patients and recipients. You can watch videos, participate in discussion groups and connect with other teens and young adults who are experiencing life before, during and after a transplant.

Be The Match Caregiver's Companion Program

Be The Match Caregiver's Companion Program The road to, through, and beyond BMT can be challenging for both the patient and the caregiver. Often times, the needs of the caregiver may go unnoticed.
