Volunteer | Aplastic Anemia and MDS International Foundation


Volunteering for AA&MDSIF is just one way you can get involved and give back to an organization that has helped you and your family.  By volunteering, you can help AA&MDSIF’s mission, increase awareness, raise funds, and help fellow patients and family members.

Anyone can be a volunteer - there's no such thing as a "typical" or “one-size-fits-all” volunteer. Volunteering opportunities vary greatly in both time commitment and activity.   You can do something as simple as sending an email to your Congressman or something as elaborate as a full-scale fundraising event.  There is a perfect volunteer opportunity waiting for you that will fit your interests, experience, skills, and timeline.  And we can help you find the perfect volunteer opportunity!
