Diamond Blackfan Anemia Canada
Support for patients and families living with DBA. Our mission is to find a cure for this rare blood disorder, 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, bone marrow failure for which there is no cure. It is estimated that there are only 2-3 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.

Thank you for joining us at the FIRST EVER DBA Canada (virtual) Diamond Dash in June 2021. Thanks to ALL OF YOU and our fabulous sponsors we were able to raise over $20,000 for DBA research.
DBA Canada was privileged to be recognized as the premier sponsor at the 15th International Consensus Conference on Diamond Blackfan Anemia hosted by the Diamond Blackfan Anemia Foundation, held in Atlanta Georgia 2018. This meeting brings together a dedicated group of doctors, researchers, scientists, families, and patients all striving for the same goal.
The American Society of Hematology hosted its 60th annual meeting and exposition
in Orlando Florida in December 2019.
DBA Canada proudly exhibited at this event along with the DBA Foundation.
This meeting was a wonderful opportunity for our foundation to connect with hematologists, researchers and clinicians worldwide, and to spread awareness about our foundation.
