Welcome to the official website of Diamond Blackfan Anemia Canada. Our Mission is to support individuals, families, and friendsaffected by, and living with Diamond Blackfan Anemia (DBA). We are here to provide a range of services to our patients. We are committed to raising awareness and offering hope, meaningful help and information. Our head office is located in Orangeville Ontario, however we service patients across the country. This foundation was started out of a need for Canadian individuals and families affected by DBA to have a resource which they can turn to for help. 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 a year in the US and Canada. DBA Canada receives its support solely from fundraising events,donations, and the generousity of individuals, foundations, and corporations.
