Finding the Cure in Every Turn

Story of how DBA Canada started

DBA Canada was founded in 2010 by two dedicated moms, who met at a conference shortly after their young children were diagnosed with a rare blood disorder. Faced with the challenges ahead and realizing the lack of support in Canada for this condition, they decided to take matters into their own hands.

United by their shared experiences and fueled by the desire to make a difference, these two moms joined forces to establish DBA Canada. Their mission was clear - to provide essential support and resources for families navigating the complexities of the rare blood disorder and to fund critical research for improved treatments.


Since its humble inception, DBA Canada has achieved significant milestones. One of the founding members has gone on to pursue other equally important ways to support the cause, making valuable contributions in their unique capacity.

Through unwavering dedication and passionate advocacy, the charity has collectively raised over $500,000, funding significant research and initiatives. This funding has made a profound impact on the lives of those affected by the disorder, offering hope and fostering a strong sense of community.

As the charity has grown, it has expanded to include more board members, all driven by the same passion and commitment to the cause. Together, they continue to inspire positive change, proving that even in the face of adversity, remarkable progress can be achieved through determination and compassion. The journey of DBA Canada stands as a testament to the power of collective action, the significance of their efforts in transforming lives, and the enduring spirit of support and research in pursuit of a brighter future.
