A Special Thanks to SCF Members

On June 18th, 2011, my wife Becky and I decided to run a fund raising yard sale for the Diamond Blackfan Anemia Foundation.  Why Diamond Blackfan Anemia?  This is the disorder that my daughter Olivia has been diagnosed with.  Diamond Blackfan Anemia or DBA, is a rare blood disorder in which the bone marrow (the center of the bone where blood cells are made) to produce red blood cells.
