With out the DBAF I would not be connected to others that have Diamond Blackfan Anemia. The DBAF has saved my life by educating me on what I need to do to combat this rare illness.
Diana – 28 years
I will not let DBA define me, I will let it strengthen me.
Carole – 16 years
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.

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
