JENNIE: Child shares experience with rare blood disorder Diamond Blackfan Anemia

Jennie

Diamond Blackfan Anemia is a rare inherited bone marrow failure syndrome.  

It is characterized by a failure of the bone marrow to produce red blood cells. This failure causes DBA patients to become severely anemic.

It is very rare…  with some 30 new cases of DBA diagnosed each year in the United States and Canada.

Destiny Tucker is a local girl who is living with DBA. She wanted to share her stroy with viewers after visiting the Jennie set recently with her grandmother, Sossette Shivers, who appeared as a guest on a show about Bee Hamilton babies.
