Provincial Support Groups

 British Columbia  has a small group of committed volunteers. Each year several meetings are arranged where speakers present topics of interest to patients dealing with bone marrow failure diseases.For more information, please contact: bcsupport@aamac.ca or 1-888-840-0039.

The Alberta group works within local communities supporting families and patients with aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and PNH by distributing information and through fund raising efforts.

We recognize the desire for peer support for patients and family members dealing with these diseases and are able to put them in contact with others that have been effected with these illnesses and are willing to speak with them about their own experiences and help them through the journey.

There are regular meetings in Alberta.  Please see Upcoming Events for details on meeting dates. Please contact info@aamac.ca or albertasupport@aamac.ca for more information.
