When I was thinking of a place to post about this, this is the only place that came to mind. I feel that the people here truly are the most compassionate people I could ever hope to ask for help. This is my second post, but I've been lurking about for awhile.


I hope that this is okay to post here. I saw that it said off-topic, so I decided to go for it.

My cousins have a rare disease called Diamond-Blackfan Anemia. Their bodies cannot produce their own red blood cells and blood transfusions are a frequent reality. Over time, with the medications they're on, iron builds up to fatal levels and leukemia and other diseases have a high rate of occurrence.


That is Justin, aged four, his mom, Nathalie, aged 29, and baby Alexandre at his first hospitalization for a blood transfusion at just a few days old. At Nat's age, she is just getting sicker and sicker and may not be around much longer unless a cure is found. Justin started Kindergarten yesterday. Please help to get his mom to his graduation!

There is a competition going on that you can vote for the DBA foundation to win 10,000$ towards finding a cure. It doesn't cost anything but a bit of your time.

The link is here:

Please help them win this!  It would mean so much to the foundation, but even more so to the individuals affected.

Thank you so much for your time.
