OK, shameless plug alert – but at least it’s a shameless plug (mostly!) for a wonderful non-profit organization that I’m involved with!
The Aplastic Anemia and MDS International Foundation works to provide answers, support and hope to people (and their families!) who have dealing with bone marrow failure diseases. The team also works to raise awareness within the medical community and the community at large around these serious, serious diseases.
They do (as so many great non-profit organizations also do) what they do well, and the work is vitally important. If you have some time, please click here to read more about what they do.
Here are some pictures from their annual patient conference. It’s a pretty special event where patients and their families can come and learn about these diseases from leading experts, and perhaps more importantly, meet with others who are working through the same issues.
Shameless plug alert #2 – notice that the pictures are of some pretty nifty looking promotional products from the event(I love how they always go with their color – red)? Sorry, couldn’t help myself…
