It is the tough things I have gone through with DBA that has made me the man I am.
For Research, For Hope – Commited to helping find a cure for Diamond Blackfan Anemia – Give life, Donate blood.
Having twin boys with DBA makes you appreciate everything in life more on a daily basis.
For me, DBA has blocked the path to my goal. To get there, I’ll have to fight it and one day, I will reach that goal because I didn’t give up!
Having DBA has taught me to not give up the fight and to do the best that I can. The DBAF has become more than just a source of friends and knowledge, but a family of support through the bad and the good.
Thankfully, our sweet girl functions very well with a low blood count. We couldn’t feel more blessed. There is hope!
“Out of difficulties grow miracles.” – Jean de La Breyere
Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about.
I will not let DBA define me, I will let it strengthen me.
