One-to-One Funds

One-to-One Funds assists patients and their families with fundraising efforts by creating a personal fund at the Foundation. It is a simple and effective way for a patient's family, friends, and community to raise money on a patient's behalf.

Using this website (or by sending a check to the Foundation), a patient’s supporters can raise money for a fund that directly benefits that patient to help with transplant expenses.

All donations are tax-deductible. The Bone Marrow Foundation administers these funds directly to the patient. Each donor receives an acknowledgment letter and the patient receives a listing of all donations made to their One-to-One Fund.

Thank you for helping me get through this difficult journey.

$388 of $1,000 Goal

In 2011, Polly began experiencing pain in her legs and hips. In January 2012, she was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in her lymph nodes. After three rounds of chemotherapy, a PET scan revealed the cancer in Polly’s lymph nodes had shrunk, but found that she also had cancer in her bones. She was then diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in her bones, in addition to the non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in her lymph nodes.

Polly has faced many obstacles throughout her illness. In November 2014, she fell in the hospital and in early December she underwent hip replacement surgery. She has also been, inexplicably, experiencing double vision. At the end of March 2015, Polly will receive an autologous stem cell transplant and will spend at least three weeks in the hospital. Polly has been taking everything in stride, but the great financial burden that her illness is taking on her family has proved a particularly bitter pill to swallow.

In order to assist Polly and her husband with expenses such as housing, utilities and medical costs while Polly is on break from her job as a waitress at Cracker Barrel, Polly has teamed up with The Bone Marrow Foundation. Any contributions to Polly’s One-to-One Fund will go directly towards transplant-related expenses. Thank you for your generosity!
