National Aplastic Anemia Awareness Week
In 1986, President Regan declared the first week of December National Aplastic Anemia Awareness Week. Aplastic anemia is a form of bone marrow disease where the body stops creating an efficient amount of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets for the body to run it’s necessary process.
The Aplastic Anemia & MDS International Foundation promotes awareness and aid for those who suffer with this disease all year long joining together with the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) for special event.
People with aplastic anemia tend to be very fatigued and their weak immune system ultimately can lead to greater health complications. Luckily, both the mild and severe cases of aplastic anemia are treatable, but the only way to make sure every person receives treatment is to spread the word and raise awareness/donate for research and marrow transplant.
