Patient assistance be the match foundation (btmf) provides financial assistance to patients throughout each stage of the transplant process. More than $4m was provided to patients in need this year. Two grant programs support patients pre-transplant and are designed to help patients who have insurance and financial barriers that delay or prevent them from finding a donor.
