I have Fanconi Anemia or FA as most people who know about it call it. While most people don't know what it is I encourage you to learn about it. This is a very rare genetic disorder with no cure and our life expectancy is only about 40 years or less. The only way for individuals to survive bone marrow failure is to receive a bone marrow transplant. For that to happen we need willing individuals to help donate their own marrow. While most people believe taking an individuals bone marrow out is painful it's not, it's like giving blood. If you want to help save somebodies life I encourage you to do so by donating your bone marrow. I have seen so many young individuals suffer due to this disease and lose their fight because of complications. To learn more about donating your bone marrow go to marrow.org. Not only will you help individuals with FA you could also help other individuals in bone marrow failure.
