2016 International Fanconi Anemia Day
May 1, 2016 marks the 7th Annual International Fanconi Anemia Day.
Fanconi anemia is an inherited life-threatening disease. Bone marrow failure in childhood is often the fate of Fanconi anemia patients as well as cancer in early adulthood. Friends and families participate in various activities during the Spring to raise awareness and fundraise. Donations support the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund whose mission is to "find effective treatments and a cure for Fanconi anemia and to provide education and support services to affected families worldwide".
Dedicated to loved ones no longer with us, those we cherish today and our future heroes.
