THE STORY:

Thanks for visiting my page! I'm one of the social workers working for The Bone Marrow Foundation. This is my second marathon. I appreciate all your support. This year is The BMF's 25th anniversary, so in honor of this I will be dedicating each mile to each year we have been helping patients and their families. Join me on this trip, learn about some of the patients we've helped, about what we do, and why we do it! No donation is too small! Be a Lifeline!


 Approximately every four minutes someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with a blood cancer or blood disorder such as leukemia or lymphoma. Patients often lack the financial resources necessary to afford not only life-saving treatment, but also the often overlooked living and ancillary expenses that can be considerable financial obstacles. Since it was founded in 1992, The Bone Marrow Foundation has been dedicated to improving the quality of life for bone marrow, stem cell, and cord blood transplant patients and their families by providing vital financial assistance, educational information, and emotional support programs. Bone marrow transplantation treats more than 70 life-threatening diseases including cancers and genetic disorders. The Bone Marrow Foundation works with doctors, nurse coordinators, social workers, and other medical staff from more than 200 hospitals and transplant centers throughout the country to connect patients and their families with the vital financial, educational, and support resources they need to make effective decisions about treatment and its aftermath. The Bone Marrow Foundation is the only organization of its kind that does not limit its assistance to a specific disease, type of transplant, or age range. For more information, please visit The Bone Marrow Foundation's website: www.bonemarrow.org
