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.
