BMT Program Celebrates 28 Years of Transplants with
Celebration of Life Dinner on July 14th
Feist-Weiller is thrilled to partner with University Health for the second year in a row. University Health manages all of the patient care side of the Blood and Marrow Program, while Feist-Weiller Cancer Center provides the physicians, fellows, research studies, educational, and other special components to the program. We are happy to have such a good working relationship with our Title Sponsor, University Health. It is this partnership which allows our patients to receive amazing care at our BMT Program.
The goal of the Celebration of Life event is to raise donations for the BMT Fund, which has been established for patients who need lodging and transportation assistance during the transplant process. The patients of the BMT program sometimes have to spend approximately two months in the hospital, and then a month or more close by for follow up appointments. The BMT Fund helps our patients with the costs of travel and lodging.
If you would like to attend:
The event will be Friday, July 14th at East Ridge Country Club in Shreveport. Tickets are $30 each ($60 for couples), and can be purchased online HERE.
Doors open at 6:30pm. Beer and Wine will be provided; otherwise, the event will have a cash bar. Entertainment will be provided by The Stilettos. Valet Parking is available.
All donations to the BMT Fund will be tax deductible. If you would like to make a donation to the BMT Fund, please click here. Simply type BMT Fund in the comment box.
More About the BMT Program:
The Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT) Program of Feist Weiller Cancer Center at University Health hospital, Shreveport is the only program in North Louisiana and in a 200 mile radius for treating acute leukemia and providing bone marrow transplant.
The program offers autologous (self) and allogeneic (donor) transplants, which includes both matched sibling donor and matched unrelated donor transplant through the registry. This year the program also started haploidentical donor transplant for patients in need for an urgent transplant and without a readily available matched donor.
