Ana Alejandra Tabar is 34 years old and currently lives in New Jersey, though she grew up in the Dominican Republic. In 1999, her oldest brother was diagnosed with Fanconi anemia, prompting Ana to be tested and subsequently diagnosed as well. Sadly, her brother passed away in 2000 from leukemia. He inspired Ana and her family to establish “Un Corazón por Fanconi,” a foundation focused on developing a diagnostic protocol for FA patients and spreading awareness about FA in the Dominican Republic. Ana works as a graphic designer and loves art, warm weather, the beach, and spending time with her family.
