Support Groups

Virtual and Local patient-focused groups play an important role in the lives of bone marrow failure patients. Connection, engagement, comfort, and compassion from peers can be hard to find for people with rare disorders. Support Groups are social settings that provide a level of mutual support that can make all the difference in a patient’s ability to cope and adapt.

Virtual Support Groups

The bone marrow failure community still needs support in spite of the restrictions of the COVID-19 Pandemic.  These support groups meet virtually only, and are open for new participants. Please click on the links below to register. After registration, you will receive an email with the virtual meeting login information.

Please note: this list is updated on a monthly basis; registrations only include the meeting posted.
