Translated Patient Materials

The Bridge

We understand the importance for materials to be available in languages. Clearly, communication between the patients and the doctors is essential, crucial and needs to be effective so patients feel understood and supported. To communicate successfully, it is important that you know information about your disease and treatment. The Bridge will help you prepare for your doctor’s appointments, hospital stay or even other situations when it is necessary for you to convey your thoughts and or ask questions. A3M has created this pocket guide with you in mind. It offers information in Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese and English. Please place your order for this free material by filling out the short form or call us at: (888) 236 4673

Patty registered to be a marrow donor when she saw A3M’s booth at her son’s basketball game one day. A few years later when Patty was traveling, her husband informed her via email that she was a match for a patient. She felt very special that she could be the one to help another person. She was concerned about the patient so she immediately let the donor center know that she was willing to go ahead. Patty’s young children also encouraged their mother saying, “Do it mom, do it”.

On her return Patty went through some blood tests and donated her marrow a few weeks later.
