GROUP FACILITATOR HIGHLIGHT

Rachel Altmann has been active in the Fanconi anemia community for several years, as an FA parent, a member of the FARF Board of Directors, a contributor to FARF newsletters, and a fundraiser. She has worked in the education sector for many years, as an environmental educator at Hawai’i Nature Center and most recently as Library Outreach Specialist at Multnomah County Library in Portland, Ore. Her daughter, Nina, succumbed to complications from Fanconi anemia in 2006 at age three. Rachel continues to honor Nina’s legacy by working to advance FA research and support other families who face FA.
