Bone Marrow & Cancer Foundation

The Bone Marrow & Cancer Foundation, founded in 1992, is dedicated to improving the quality of life for cancer and transplant patients and their families by providing vital financial assistance, comprehensive resources, educational information, physician referrals, and emotional support programs.
Guided by a medical advisory board of nationally-recognized cancer specialists and working with hospitals across the United States, the Bone Marrow & Cancer Foundation is the only organization of its kind that does not limit assistance to a specific disease, type of transplant or age range. For the past 27 years, the Foundation has connected patients and their families with the services they need— from diagnosis through survivorship—to make effective decisions about treatment and its aftermath. All of the Foundation’s programs and services are offered to patients and their families free of charge.

The Bone Marrow & Cancer Foundation is a small office environment so an important qualification for the position is a willingness to pitch in with a variety of tasks as needed. It is a rewarding job opportunity and requires excellent organizational and communication skills along with compassion.
