Second Chance at Life is proud to provide financial assistance to individuals pre- or 
post-transplant through one of our three assistance programs. We also provide fund-
ing to the emergency funds at Transplant Centers throughout Michigan.
DENTAL ASSISTANCE:
Second Chance at Life’s Dental Assistance Program grants money to pre-transplant 
patients. All patients wanting to get on the transplant list must obtain dental clearance.
If a patient has untreated dental issues, their risk of infection is high and makes them 
a poor candidate for transplantation. After a transplant, patients must maintain good 
dental health in order to minimize the chance of infection and rejection of the trans-
planted organ.
