Their Story Matters with Sara Troy and her guest Serafina Sammarco airs August 2nd-8th
Her mission is to educate and support individuals affected by this genetic disorder. She truly believes that no matter what our life challenges may be, rising above them is what makes us stronger.
Her drive was sparked by her daughter’s diagnosis of a genetic blood disorder at the age of 8 months and her death at 14 years of age.
She is the founder and president of The Vancouver Thalassemia Society, which she started after her daughter’s passing.
