With your help, we can protect bone marrow transplant patients from life threatening diseases, and provide much needed privacy, through the construction of a new state-of-the-art bone marrow transplant ward at St Vincent's Hospital, Sydney. We aim to raise $300,000 to fully fit out one of the sixteen rooms in the ward and need your support to give patients the best possible chance of full recovery.
Arrow Bone Marrow Transplant Foundation
The Arrow Bone Marrow Transplant Foundation funds medical research into the cause, prevention, treatment and cure of leukaemia and other diseases treatable by bone marrow and stem cell transplantation. Arrow currently supports critical research into how microRNA genes contribute to the uncontrolled growth and immature features which are hallmarks of leukaemia. This year, Arrow awarded four PhD scholarships in support of research into leukaemia and stem cell transplantation; and six nursing scholarships to nurses wanting to further their education in the field of blood cancers with the College of Nursing. Arrow also supports patients through accommodation, education, travel assistance and a free Wig Library for patients experiencing hair loss through chemotherapy.
