What is The Blood Bag Project?
The Blood Bag Project is a craft project that aims to raise awareness of the rare blood condition Diamond Blackfan Anaemia.
22 month old Chloe suffers from the rare blood condition Diamond Blackfan Anaemia. This project has been set up by Chloe's auntie Leigh, who wants to encourage people to donate blood. Chloe's main source of help is through blood donation. However, Leigh is unable to give blood herself and understands she's not alone. This project is for those who want to help the blood cause by donating in another way. By downloading the free template and creating your own textile blood bag, anyone can get involved!
For more information about The Blood Bag Project and your free downloadable PDF, please visit the website.
What is Diamond Blackfan Anaemia (DBA)?
DBA means that Chloe's bone marrow does not create new red blood cells, causing her to become severly anaemic very quickly. There are thought to be around 125 sufferers in the UK and only 700 worldwide.
As a result, Chloe has blood transfusions every 4-5 weeks, recieving her first two whilst still in the womb. The tot is the youngest person in the UK to have a port fitted in her chest, after her veins collapsed from being over used.
When Chloe reaches the age of ten, she will be strong enough to undergo chemotherapy and receive a bone marrow transplant. Until then, she will need more than thirty five pints of blood and will have had around 120 transfusions to keep her alive.
Charity Registration No. 1083179
with only 125 known cases in the UK it is an information lifeline for parents because doctors rarely know enough about the condition. it organises annual conferences for families to meet.
