Jasmine Bennetsen

Jasmine is 28 years old and currently lives in Florida. Jasmine was diagnosed with FA as a teenager and received a bone marrow transplant in August 2019. She has been a leader in the FA adult community and currently serves as co-chair of the FAdult Council, an advisory council formed last year to advocate for and represent the growing adult FA population. An avid photographer, Jasmine put her skills to use working for Apple in Florida and in California. She has traveled around the country to speak at FARF events and has inspired many with her enthusiasm and authenticity. In her own words, "I am most excited to have the opportunity to impact that patient and family community for the better. I look forward to bringing the patient perspective to the board, and to being someone my fellow adult community can speak through."
