Mission Statement

The Family Support Program (FSP) is a volunteer-based program that provides specific programs, resources and services to patients and families during their time at Duke. It was founded in May of 1997 as a partnership, born through the efforts of families who experienced transplant at Duke and the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant staff. The program seeks to embrace families and fully address their needs during the arduous transplant process.

Description

Undergoing bone marrow transplant is quite possibly one of the most terrifying and lonely experiences a family may ever endure. The life and death struggle affects not only the patient, but the entire family. The necessity to embrace families, coming from within the community as well as from without is vital to their social, emotional and financial survival.
