Mission: The National Bone Marrow Transplant Link (nbmtLINK) helps patients, as well as their caregivers, families, and the health care community, meet the many challenges of bone marrow/stem cell transplants (BMT) by providing vital information and support services. BACKGROUNDEach year, thousands of patients turn to bone marrow/stem cell transplants to treat cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. While a BMT can be a very effective treatment, it is a long and demanding process for patients and their loved ones. Since its founding in 1992, the nbmtLINK has helped thousands of individuals world wide, through its comprehensive website and online library found at www.nbmtlink.org, patient-friendly publications, Emmy-Award winning video, volunteer peer support programs, resource referrals and educational forums. The nbmtLINK provides a vital link for people seeking information, reassurance, and hope before, during and after a BMT.

I founded the organization in 1992 because of the huge demand for information and emotional support from patients and families undergoing a bone marrow transplant (BMT). After I heard the story of Sandy who had to leave her 2 year old to travel across the country to have her BMT, never knowing if she would see her baby again, I identified with her desperation and knew that others like her would welcome emotional support, encouragement, and hope.
