Approved and Donation Ready
This fund has been developed in response to patients who have contacted PAF for help with their medication expenses and could not find help. While this fund has been fully designed and we are ready to provide needed support to these patient communities, this fund is not yet able to accept applications for assistance as we are still working to secure charitable donations that will allow us to open it.
If you, or someone you know, would like to contribute to this fund, please visit our Donors page for more information on how to provide critical support for patients in need.Fund Type

Thalassemia is a group of inherited blood disorders, in which the body makes an abnormal form or inadequate amount of hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen. Due to the lack of hemoglobin, the red blood cells don’t function properly and last a shorter amount of time, so fewer healthy red blood cells are available to carry oxygen to the body. There are two main types of thalassemia: alpha thalassemia (caused by mutations in the HBA1 and HBA2 genes) and beta thalassemia (caused by mutations in the HBB gene), that refer to the part of hemoglobin that is not being produced, resulting in anemia. Thalassemia affects men and women equally; severe forms are usually diagnosed in early childhood and are lifelong conditions. Thalassemia is also called alpha-thalassemia major, thalassemia intermedia, Hemoglobin H-Constant Spring, Hemoglobin H Disease and Cooley’s anemia.
