CHARITIES & NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS
Aplastic Anemia and Myelodysplasia Association of Canada

Aplastic anemia is a rare but extremely serious disorder that results when the marrow fails to produce blood cells. Aplastic anemia may be either acquired or inherited.

Myelodysplasia, also called myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), is similar to aplastic anemia in that production of blood cells is decreased; however, the blood cells which are produced in myelodysplasia may not function properly. You can share as much or as little as you want. We also ask our volunteers to respect your privacy.

The experiences of other patients should not be considered as medical advice. What works for one person may not work for another. Always talk to your doctor first.

Expressive Communication Help Organization

ECHO is a volunteer-run non-profit charity established by parents for parents/caregivers of late-talking children diagnosed with or suspected of having Apraxia of Speech, Dyspraxia, Dysarthria or Oral Motor Speech Disorders. We offer resources, information, friendship and support to those whose lives are touched by a late-talking child.

Our group had its first meeting in July of 2000, just some families informally chatting. We exchanged information, resources and experiences. It was validating just to be with others who understood our frustrations having a "late talker" - a child who seemed to understand everything, but just didn't talk.
