It will be a day of fun connecting with fellow patients and families. The event will include inspirational speakers, the Walk, a 5K Run (see next post below), a silent auction, and light refreshments. Check out the video.

On a beautiful day in Long Beach, California, hundreds of participants made the Hope, Steps & A Cure Los Angeles Walk and 5K Run a great success. Tens of thousands of dollars were raised for the critical work of the Aplastic Anemia & MDS International Foundation, while runners, walkers, patients, family members, and supporters all enjoyed themselves.
