Supporting Canadians with bone marrow failure diseases

The Aplastic Anemia & Myelodysplasia Association of Canada (AAMAC) is a leading funder of research into bone marrow failure diseases in Canada. Our volunteer-run organization supports patients and caregivers across the country who are living with aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndrome (also called MDS or myelodysplasia) and paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH).

What we do

  • Inform the public about aplastic anemia, MDS and PNH
  • Provide a nation-wide support network for patients and their families
  • Educate and advocate
  • Raise funds for medical research
  • Promote Canadian Blood Services and Héma-Québec blood programs and the unrelated bone marrow donor registry, OneMatch

You are not alone

If you or someone you know has aplastic anemia, MDS or PNH, contact us. Volunteers with personal experience with these diseases can provide valuable guidance and support.

While we provide general information, it should not be considered medical advice.
