After a bone marrow transplant, patients are required to attend their treatment centres for ongoing consultations and tests for many months. They often are unable to return to work for up to a year. Travelling to and from hospital for ongoing tests and consultations can be financially challenging, particularly for patients who live in regional areas or interstate. Help Arrow assist patients and carers experiencing difficulties meeting the cost of travel for transplant and post transplant treatment.
Assistance can be in the form of petrol cards, airfares and accommodation.
