Patient Resources and Support
We provide educational resources and support to all patients before, during and after transplant. We help patients considering autologous and allogeneic transplant and patients years after transplant, as well as their families and caregivers.
Clinical Trials Search & Support
For many people with a blood cancer or blood disorder, treatment through a clinical trial provides hope and a potential cure. But it's not always easy to find one. Our clinical trials navigators can help you and your patients explore available clinical trials. All of our programs and resources are free.
For patients, we provide:
- One-on-one search support- We can help patients learn about treatment options, search for trials they may qualify for, answer their questions and explain their rights when participating in a clinical trial.
- A searchable clinical trial database - Our online search tool includes trials from clinicaltrials.gov that are re-written in patient-friendly language. Learn more about the search tool.
- Educational resources about clinical trials and treatments that may be available through a clinical trial
- A financial grant to help cover some costs of traveling to a clinical trial.
For you and your colleagues, we can:
- Help identify possible trials for your patients
- Provide plain language resources to help you teach your patients about clinical trials and newer treatment options like gene and other targeted therapies
