How you can help:

Thalassemia Patient and Research Fund

children There are many different ways you can help in the ongoing fight against Thalassemia. The Northern California Comprehensive Thalassemia Center needs your support to help fund the Thalassemia Patient Fund which has been set up to help pay for patient expenses that become major difficulties over the long term such as transportation costs for families who live in rural areas, desferal supplies, pumps, medications not covered by insurance, parking vouchers and other costs. The fund also provides access to more expensive new therapies for low-income families, and finances patient participation in new research programs. Due to language and cultural barriers, part of the patient fund also pay for professional interpreters and translation of medical literature into languages such as Chinese, Vietnamese, Lao, Cambodian, Hmong, and Tagalog and other educational materials to target these high at risk population.

Financial contributions and fund-raising by organizations is greatly needed and appreciated. Please act now to support the Thalassemia Patient Fund. It is through your support that we are able to provide quality comprehensive care to our patients to improve their quality of life. Many thanks to our supporters!
