As part of the annual April Fool’s pancake breakfast at Tremont Center on Saturday, businesses and residents will be helping out a serious cause — helping to fund a bone-marrow transplant for 5-year-old Fred Drew.

Sometimes I feel like the odd one out, restricted by DBA. I just have to keep reminding myself that God wouldn’t bless me with this challenge if He didn’t think I could handle it. I don’t let DBA define me, I try to defy DBA.

We are not the first to say this and we will not be the last, the DBAF has saved our child’s life. I cringe at the thought of what her care would be had we not met the DBAF.

It has been seven years since DBA became part of our vocabulary. Our son’s diagnosis brought confusion, apprehension and despair. The discovery of DBAF is a stroke of serendipity. While even more tears were shed, these are now mingled with knowledge, understanding and, more significantly, hope. It will be through research that our son will be able to secure a brighter future.

I am here. I am in the present tense. I’m not always here, and sometimes here is a very difficult place. Sometimes it is a labyrinth, or a Minotaur, or a rope I can neither let go of nor follow. It’s hard to find the right words, but I guess I would say that it’s something like feeling the floor. And that it is my privilege to feel it. -Meg Howrey

The DBAF has been a life saver for us! They’ve supplied us with the knowledge and the resources to fight off anything DBA might throw at us.
