The Arrow Bone Marrow Transplant Foundation
We are the only charity in Australia dedicated to helping bone marrow transplant patients. For 30 years, Arrow has funded life-saving research into bone marrow and stem cell therapies, while providing support for patients and their carers through treatment and beyond.
Saving lives through research
Funding vital research to improve bone marrow transplant outcomes
Ongoing medical research is improving patient outcomes, but there’s still so much to be done. That’s why we provide funding for a research scientist at the blood stem cell and cancer research unit of St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney – as well as offering scholarships for PhD students, while funding promising grass-roots research projects in this field.
Supporting you through the treatment journey
Arrow provides a wide range of patient support services covering: the cost of travel and a place to stay during treatment, emergency funding and transplant information seminars and guides for patients and carers.
Making your treatment a little easier
We understand that losing your hair can be one of the most difficult and distressing side effects of chemotherapy – and that a wig may help give you more confidence while facing the challenges of your treatment.
High-quality wigs are available in a large range of colours, lengths and styles to choose from. You can borrow one, totally free of charge, for as long as you need it.
Could you use help with the cost of your studies?
We offer scholarships for registered nurses in the field of bone marrow transplant, chemotherapy and haematology.
Major project: Building a new bone marrow transplant ward
Keeping transplant patients safe before and during treatment.
We are currently raising funds to help build a new, state-of-the-art transplant ward to protect vulnerable transplant patients from the severe dangers of infection. We are determined to raise $300,000 to fit-out one of the 16 rooms on the new ward – and we need your help.
