Arrow was originally established in 1987 to finance the Australasian Bone Marrow Transplant Recipient Registry (ABMTRR) which collects, collates and distributes transplant patient data across 52 hospitals in Australia and New Zealand. Over the past 30 years our work has expanded to include:
- Funding medical research into the cause, prevention, treatment and cure of diseases that can be treated by bone marrow transplant.
- Supporting patients and their families before, during and after bone marrow transplant treatment.
- Providing opportunities for registered nurses working in the field of haematology or bone marrow transplantation.
The foundation has some excellent patient information and resources.
