Description

Established in 1987, the Arrow Bone Marrow Transplant Foundation (Arrow) is today the only national charity that aims to improve the survival and quality of life for patients with blood diseases treatable by bone marrow and blood stem cell transplants, while providing support for their carers in Australia by: funding medical research projects; providing vital emergency funding, travel and accommodation support to patients, their carers and families; and by improving patient care through specialised education and skills development for nurses and other health staff. Arrow also runs the Tracey Scone Wig Library to give all cancer patients the opportunity to borrow a quality wig completely free of charge.
