The Bronze Killer (New Edition)

$29 CDN + $4 Shipping (Within Canada)
Since this book was first published in 1989, thousands of families around the world have found The Bronze Killer to be a valuable resource. More than just the personal account of a family who have suffered through the ravages of this terrible disease, it has been a source of information, encouragement and enlightenment to many.

Included is “Iron – The Other Side of the Story”, which was the first “layperson’s” reference to the genetic disorder that, if untreated, can lead to a destructive overload of iron in the body, far too often with fatal results. Recommended by physicians and clinics in Canada and further afield, The Bronze Killer earned high praise for the author in her 1991 citation for the Canada Volunteer Medal of Honour and Certificate of Honour.

The author of The Bronze Killer, Marie Warder, is the founder and President Emeritus of both the Canadian Hemochromatosis Society and the Haemochromatosis Society of South Africa. She is also the founder of the International Association of Haemochromatosis Societies, and she served for many years as the President of this organization. As such, she has assisted in the establishment of affiliated societies in several countries.

Note: The Canadian Hemochromatosis Society has a limited number of out-of-print First Edition copies of The Bronze Killer (ISBN 0889258856) for individuals who particularly want the first edition.
