Raising funding for blood cancer & GvHD research
Elevating the awareness of, and funding research for, the treatment of all blood cancers
The Meredith A. Cowden Foundation raises funding for research and awareness of the blood cancers, as well as Graft-Versus-Host Disease (GvHD), a condition that is a complication of a bone marrow transplant. GvHD can be an acute or chronic condition and, sadly, can be fatal if not controlled properly. Through our events, we have raised funds for leukemia researchers, who work to discover new and effective ways to combat the disease and avoid the side effects of current treatments.
For more information specific to Graft vs Host Disease, visit Janssen.com and search “GvHD”

MissionThe mission of the Meredith A. Cowden Foundation is to increase the number of leukemia survivors; to raise awareness of the blood cancers and help people living with the treatment of them; to improve the post-transplant quality of life for bone marrow transplant recipients, and to support the mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Give HopeHelp us connect people to the help they deserve. Your support is more than a donation, it is an investment in the lives of children and adults struggling with GvHD. Fund groundbreaking research to discover a cure for this devasting disease. Every dollar matters.
