The DBA wristbands are now available!! Enclosed with each wristband will be a small card stating that all proceeds benefit the DBA Foundation and gives information about the DBA Foundation and our website address. Two sizes are available; Adult measuring approximately 8 inches, and Youth measuring approximately 7 inches.

Please remember that this is an important fundraiser for the DBAF. Each wristband will be available for a $2.00 minimum donation. Instead of “selling” the wristbands for $2.00 to your friends and family, ask them to support the DBAF by wearing the wristband and making a minimum donation of $2.00. You will be amazed at the outpouring of generosity. People will show their support with $5, $10, $20.00. Last time, someone purchased a single wristband for $100.00! Although I cannot monitor this, I am confidently requesting that our DBA families help make this project a huge success. Please, if you receive anything above the $2.00, send it directly to the DBA Foundation PO Box 1092, West Seneca, NY 14224.

We have research to fund and the only way the DBAF can fund these important projects is if we, the families, make it happen!

Please email your shipping information to, specifying the quantity you would like of each size. I will respond to your email giving you my address and any other necessary details. All checks for the pre-orders should be made out to the DBA Foundation, but mailed to me so I can fill your order. I will forward the checks to the DBAF. Please include shipping charges separately, made out to me. I know it is a hassle but it will make it much easier, so THANK YOU!

I will be shipping the wristbands using United States Post Office priority flat rate boxes and envelopes.
Postage fees are:

  • 1-30 wristbands will be $5.00
  • 31-150 wristbands will be $10.35
  • Overseas orders, contact me privately so I can check on your postage fee.

I sincerely thank everyone for your participation in this fundraiser. The DBAF does a fantastic job and our families working together keeps it strong.
