The Aplastic Anemia & Myelodysplasia Association of Canada (AAMAC) is a leading funder of research into bone marrow failure diseases in Canada. Our volunteer-run organization supports patients and caregivers across the country who are living with aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndrome (also called MDS or myelodysplasia) and paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH).
November 27 is Giving Tuesday, a day of international charitable giving and volunteering. As part of this global effort, AAMAC is seeking the support of Canadians across the country to continue the important work it does for Canadians with bone marrow failure disease.
But we can only do that with your help.
With your support, AAMAC can continue to reach and support more patients, fund important research and increase awareness of bone marrow failure diseases. You can do this several ways: Make a one-time or monthly donation; ask your employer to match your donation; include AAMAC in your estate planning; or donate your time and skills to AAMAC.
