Fund-Raising Assistance

Marrow typing tests are costly—upwards of $80 each. So running a marrow donor drive can become an onerous financial burden for a family already facing a medical—and financial—crisis as a result of the illness itself. Marrow Power officials advise families seeking to conduct marrow donor drives about ways to obtain funding for this testing.


Peer Counseling

Marrow Power matches newly diagnosed patients and their caregivers with others who have faced a similar ordeal. Through these matchups, new patients gain a greater understanding of the intricacies of the illness, the nuances of dealing with doctors and hospitals, how to make the most of a health insurance policy and navigate the world of contemporary health insurance, and how to marshal the community to help sign up voluntary marrow donors and pay for marrow typing.


Education & Public Awareness

Marrow Power focuses on educating the public about leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and other blood cancers, and what can be done to treat and cure them. Patients who need to undergo a bone marrow transplant to save their lives often have no one in their family who matches their marrow type. So they must find an unrelated, genetically compatible, living marrow donor so they can undergo this lifesaving procedure. Members of the healthy public must be urged to come forward and volunteer as marrow donors to save the lives of people stricken with these potentially fatal illnesses.
