Chloe and DBA

Six year old Chloe suffers from a rare blood condition called Diamond Blackfan Anaemia.

Diamond Blackfan Anaemia is a rare genetic blood disorder affecting around 700 people worldwide. The bone marrow condition prohibits red cell production. As a result, patients must receive regular blood transfusions to survive. As a result, Chloe has blood transfusions every 3-4 weeks, receiving her first two whilst still in the womb.
