Aplastic Anemia & Myelodysplasia Association of Canada (AAMAC)

Helping Canadians with bone marrow failure diseases

Get moving with the Marrow Movers!

Walk or pledge to raise funds and help Canadians with the bone marrow failure diseases.

Each year hundreds of Canadians are diagnosed with aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) or PNH (parnoxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria).

These stories of walkers from last year's fun 5k walk will give you a sense of who faces this family of diseases (Hint: everyone!)

Bone marrow failure diseases aren't familiar to many people, and it's hard to find information you can trust when you suddenly have to learn everything you can. Following diagnosis with a rare bone marrow disease, patients and their families are often overwhelmed by a maze of unfamiliar terminology.

That's where AAMAC can help. Volunteers with personal experience can offer support to patients, their families and friends, as well as reliable information and advocacy for everyone battling these diseases.

You can support the Association's efforts. Join the Marrow Movers today.
