National Hemochromatosis Awareness Month

May 1, 2019 - May 31, 2019

Celebrate Hemochromatosis Awareness Month in your community! Resources are available on this page.

If it is time for a phlebotomy, please consider donating blood in honour of Hemochromatosis Awareness Month!

Hemochromatosis sufferers can donate every 56 days for men and 84 days for women, which is the usual interval for whole blood donation at Canadian Blood Services.

In Quebec, you can donate your blood at Héma-Québec blood donor clinic every 56 days.

We have partnered with Canadian Blood Services in BC to promote Hemochromatosis Awareness Month. Visit our calendar to see if there will be a mobile blood donor centre near you! We are also looking for hemochromatosis ambassadors to promote awareness of iron overload with blood donors resting in the refreshments area. Please take part by signing up to volunteer and help save lives!
