BMT Support & Survivorship

BMT Support & Survivorship

The transplant process can be long and difficult. We are committed to providing you with the support and resources you need during your treatment and survivorship.

Watch what happened the moment Neal met his donor Justin at our BMT reunion event:


It is important for you to be live near the hospital during the transplant process. If you live more than 50 miles from the hospital, your BMT team will work with you to identify appropriate lodging. Patients and their caregivers have several lodging options:

  • Local discounted hotel suites
  • Complimentary lodging from the Winn – Dixie American Cancer Society Hope Lodge
  • Nine fully furnished corporate apartments donated by The Stovall Foundation and the Northside Hospital Foundation
  • Two additional corporate apartments through local complexes

Your transplant coordinator will assist you in finding the best lodging option to meet your needs.

Financial Assistance

All patients meet with financial coordinators at the beginning of the BMT/leukemia process to assist with financial and insurance-related planning. We accept most major health insurance plans, including Medicare and Georgia Medicaid. Your insurance coverage will depend on your individual policy. Researching the details of your policy will help you plan effectively for the cost of your transplant. Financial coordinators are available throughout your entire transplant process to help you understand your policy deductibles, coinsurance, policy maximum(s), COBRA, prescription coverage, and other potential out-of-pocket expenses.

Financial coordinators are available through the BMTGA office and Northside Hospital. 

Behavioral Health

Our BMT Program has a full-time dedicated BMT/Leukemia health psychologist who monitors each patient’s cognitive and emotional status prior to and during the transplant process. The health psychologist offers patients and families in-depth emotional support and assesses and teaches coping skills and relaxation/stress management techniques. We also have a full time dedicated BMT/Leukemia social worker who collaborates with the health psychologist, coordinators, physicians and our multidisciplinary team members.

BMT Information Network

The Blood & Marrow Transplant Information Network is an organization dedicated to providing stem cell transplant patients, survivors and their loved ones emotional support and access to quality information about stem cell, bone marrow and cord blood transplants.

Network of Hope

When patients are facing cancer, they need a special kind of support that can only come from someone who knows what they are going through, someone who has been through it themselves. Network of Hope (NOH) connects patients with specially trained survivor volunteers, who have faced cancer and embraced life afterward. The program helps foster an open environment so patients and their families feel supported and not alone. For information, contact (404) 851-8707 or

A Wellness Place at Northside Hospital
