Diamond Blackfan Anemia Canada
Support for patients and families living with DBA. Our mission is to find a cure through funding research, and to provide support and resources for Diamond Blackfan Anemia patients and their families. Diamond Blackfan Anemia (DBA) is an extremely rare, severe anemia of childhood for which there is no cure. It is Estimated that there are only 25-30 new cases diagnosed in Canada every year. Due to the rarity of the disorder very little funding is provided by the government for research. We are a registered charity with the Canada revenue agency. All donations we receive come from the generosity of families friends and corporations.
