Help is what we do

There are three key areas that highlight the many ways we help patients and their families navigate the organ transplant journey.

PATIENT SERVICES

Education, collaboration and person-to-person support are key to navigating the transplant journey successfully. We’ve helped thousands of people, and we’re here to help you.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

Affording a transplant (and its pre- and post-op expenses) is challenging – even with the best insurance. We help patients and their families fill the financial gaps.

TRANSPLANT PARTNERSHIPS

We have highly productive, time-tested relationships with the nation’s top transplant centers. Together, we work to ensure every patient has access to financial resources.

MY SECOND CHANCE

“NFT took a great deal of stress off my family and me, so I could focus on healing. I was given a second chance to raise my son and to be around for many years to come.”
