The Blood Cancer Foundation of Michigan (BCFM) is a state-wide nonprofit organization whose mission is to ensure the emotional, social and financial stability of Michigan patients and families as they navigate their blood cancer journey.

As we continue to grow, with limited resources, and strive to meet patients’ and family members’ emotional, social and financial needs, interns are critical to our success. BCFM is seeking interns who are interested in learning and supporting all aspects of our organization (specifically our fundraising and marketing efforts), as well as those looking for field placement opportunities in social work.


For Master’s level students preparing to enter the social work profession, Patient Support interns obtain a hands-on learning experience, working collaboratively as a part of BCFM’s Patient Support team to wrap a blanket of care around adults and children facing blood cancer. Interns will learn how to support a vulnerable population and provide them with resources, as well as how to develop various programs, manage aspects of fundraising and plan events

Sample Patient Support Responsibilities: Work with Patient Support Specialists to provide disease related information and education, emotional support, and financial assistance to BCFM patients and family members; support BCFM patient and fundraising events; conduct outreach to hospitals, cancer centers, and community agencies.

Our Patient Support department obtains students from MSW programs at accredited universities in the state of Michigan. If you’d like to intern in this department, please contact your university field placement liaison.
