What is the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund?

Fanconi anemia is an inherited disease that can lead to bone marrow failure and cancer. Though considered primarily a blood disease, FA may affect all systems of the body. It is a complex and chronic disorder that is psychologically demanding. FA is also a cancer-prone disease, affecting patients decades earlier than the general population.

Lynn and Dave Frohnmayer started the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund, in 1989 to find effective treatments and a cure for Fanconi anemia and to provide education and support services to affected families worldwide.
