MediGO cares about the transplant community that we serve.
Our mission is to save lives, so we find organizations that do just that.
Stepping Stones is a local organization that supports transplant patients through their entire journey. In 2008, the transplant social workers at Johns Hopkins Hospital developed the Stepping Stones Transplant Patient Assistance Fund. This fund assists adult and pediatric patients who have received a heart, lung, liver, kidney and/or pancreas transplant at Johns Hopkins. As people recover from their transplant surgery and try to get back on their feet, many patients and their family members/caregivers find themselves losing time from work. At the same time, they have to find a way to manage increased expenses from medical costs, travel to appointments, parking, etc. This adds stress to an already stressful situation. Stepping Stones has been able to alleviate some of that burden.
About Stepping stones
Stepping Stones has raised funds through raffles at holiday parties, bingo nights, donations from staff and patients, and activities like t-shirt sales. So many dedicated members of the Comprehensive Transplant Center have come together over the years to help support Stepping Stones. With the funds raised, we are able to assist patients with things like gas to get to appointments, parking vouchers, grocery gift cards, electricity bills, car repairs and more. If a patient and their family are struggling, we want to find a way to help so they have the best chance to be successful with managing transplant. 100% of all funds donated or raised for Stepping Stones go directly to patient support.
