Wristbands To Raise Awarness On Fanconi Anemia

Raise Awareness of Fanconi anemia with Custom Bracelets

Inherited diseases, such as Fanconi anemia, affect thousands of families each year. When a disease runs in the family as this one does, it creates fear within the family and often misunderstanding outside the family. That's why awareness is so important. Improving awareness of conditions such as Fanconi anemia can lead to a better understanding, more support, and additional research.

Support Fanconi Anemia Awareness

Custom hope wristbands can be used to both raise awareness for Fanconi anemia or as a fundraising tool. "Fanconi Anemia Awareness" or "Support FA Research for a Cure" can help start conversations about this important topic, which will lead to more funding and research.

What is Fanconi Anemia?

According to the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund, Fanconi Anemia (FA) is one of the inherited anemias that leads to bone marrow failure (aplastic anemia). Here are some important facts about Fanconi anemia:

  • It is primarily a recessive disorder: if both parents carry a defect (mutation) in the same FA gene, each of their children has a 25% chance of inheriting the defective gene from both parents.
  • The incidence rate, or the likelihood of a child being born with FA, is about 1 in 131,000 in the U.S., with approximately 31 babies born with FA each year.
  • FA occurs equally in males and females. It is found in all ethnic groups.
  • The current median lifespan for a patient with FA is 33 years, although there are now patients living into their 30s, 40s and 50s.
  • Though considered primarily a blood disease, it can affect all systems of the body.
  • Many patients eventually develop acute myeloid leukemia (AML) at a very early age. FA patients are extremely likely to develop a variety of cancers and at a much earlier age than patients in the general population.
  • Patients who have had a successful bone marrow transplant and are therefore cured of the blood problem associated with FA still must have regular examinations to watch for signs of cancer.
