Review for Diamond Blackfan Anemia Foundation, West Seneca, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is an organization with a huge heart and little funding. Please take a moment to look at their website at www.dbafoundation.org to see all the good that they bring to the world.

Diamond Blackfan Anemia is an extremely rare disease. No two cases are alike. In some cases, it is completely a mystery as to where the disease originated from.

There is no cure.

There is hope.

You can make a difference today by allocating United Way funds to DBAF or hosting a fundraiser. We may be a small population but we work in communities around the world supporting the efforts of local blood banks as well as our disease. Please consider helping today.

Review for Camp Sunshine at Sebago Lake Inc, Casco, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

First off, I am not just a client served...I am a donor and a future volunteer.

My son has an extremely rare disease. Camp Sunshine allows him to meet with other kids who deal with the same issues he does. It allows me to meet other parents to bond with and connect with so we can talk/chat/email/facebook in between our two year sessions with our hopes/fears/questions/experiences. Camp Sunshine is life changing. There is no way to truly put it in words. It makes more than a difference. It changes your world...though emotional as you talk through some of your emotions and find those emotions that have been buried for a long time. All this while your child is living a fun, safe and normal camp life. Siblings are well provided for as well. Please take a moment to look at their web site where you will see photos filled with love. The volunteers pour their love into each session. The employees are top notch and I could not say enough good about the on site counselor Nancy. If you paid her a million dollars a year, it wouldn't be enough. The sacrifice her family has made by working there is truly a Blessing for all of us.

Review for Camp Sunshine at Sebago Lake Inc, Casco, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son has an extremely rare disease. Camp Sunshine is the only way to meet others with the disease. Our foundation partners and brings in the top doctors and researchers to make it a vacation, appointment with your specialist for your orphan disease, bonding with other families and hearing first hand in the scientific world what is happening. It is a take-your-breath-away experience. It is full of hugs and tears--both happy to see others, sad to learn the real facts and happy again to learn about hope. I can't recommend it enough. My goal is to come back as a volunteer.
