The Six Most Expensive Medical Procedures

September 24, 2015

As many of our supporters know, the journey to transplantation can be a very expensive one. Many people don't realize the lifelong costs associated with transplants, including regular follow-up care and a lifetime of medications to keep a transplanted organ healthy. Even with seemingly good health coverage, the costs of co-pays and doctors' visits can become overwhelming for many patients. At NFT, we're dedicated to helping patients raise the funds they need to afford their lifesaving treatment and care. To learn more about fundraising, visit our Become a Patient page.
