As parents it is difficult to watch our son go through so much (IVs, pokes, transfusions, ER visits, steriod side effects, tests, ect.), but the resilience and toughness Elton shows each day is what gets us through.
Elton – 2 years
Bailey – 4 years
This DBA family is the greatest group of people that I never wanted to have to know, but blessed that I do. The support from the DBA Foundation is immeasurable.
Seth – 4 years
Though in our hearts we desire to be free from DBA, we have learned patience, love, trust, perseverance, compassion, courage, and to cry.
Dawson – 2 years
He’s living on borrowed blood and we take one day at a time.
Irelynn – 2 years
For Research, For Hope – Commited to helping find a cure for Diamond Blackfan Anemia – Give life, Donate blood.
Brian – 10 months
I am and always will be special. I am and always will be DBA Strong!
David – 1 month(now 12 years)
This is David at 1 month old weighing almost 2 pounds. DBA changed our paths in life, but I will ALWAYS be there to hold his hand for he holds my heart.
Lily – 10 years
Lily loves everyday she has, especially the ones she’s not in the hospital. Lily is the strongest little girl I know, my hero.
McKindree – 14 years
And when the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through or how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. BUT…one thing is certain: When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in!
Kellan – 22 months
Our son has truly changed our perspective on everything.
