HelpHOPELive (formerly NTAF) was started 30 years ago as a community effort to address the uninsured health care needs of heart transplant patients in the Greater Philadelphia area. Over the years we have expanded our mission to meet the growing demand for our services. Today, we are a national nonprofit organization serving all solid organ, bone marrow and stem cell transplant candidates, as well as individuals living with catastrophic injuries.
Since inception in 1983, HelpHOPELive has assisted more than 6,000 patients and families with fundraising - raising nearly $88 million to pay for uncovered expenses related to lifesaving transplants, and (since 2000) life-changing spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries.
Funds raised through our program have helped more than 2,200 patients receive a transplant, and to restore independence and quality of life for nearly 700 injured individuals.
Total assistance provided: more than $73 million.
