Kids Beating Cancer’s “Fund the Match” Program – Provides search assistance funds to help pay the costs to identify a compatible donor. The Request for Funding is through the Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Transplant Center to begin the donor search process so you can move forward with your transplant as soon as possible.
To be eligible:
Your Physician must have started a preliminary search by first HLA typing the siblings of the patient. If lab results show their is no compatible HLA matches within the family your Physician will start a preliminary search for an un-related donor from the Be The Match Registry and/or search for an umbilical cord blood donor. Your transplant must be facilitated at the Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Transplant Center.
Your transplant coordinator has gone over your insurance with you and determined you do not have enough coverage to cover the donor search costs. You do not have the financial resources to pay for these costs on your own. Your transplant coordinator must submit your application to Kids Beating Cancer.
