Bringing together people & families affected by FA

Fanconi Anaemia Support Australasia (FASA) is a membership-driven volunteer organisation which aims to unite and inform the FA community in Australia, New Zealand and beyond.

Fanconi Anaemia (FA) is a rare, life-limiting genetic disorder causing bone marrow failure in children and a predisposition to gynaecological, head and neck cancers, together with other complications both in childhood and in later life.



Team FASA are running in the 2024 Sydney Marathon!

Jimmy Tampion, along with committee member Eli Chan and friend Camryn Cooper will run the gruelling 42km marathon that takes place across various landmarks in Sydney during mid-September, finally crossing the Harbour Bridge to finish at the Opera House.

You can join team FASA by sponsoring their run with a tax-deductible donation.

Got a question? Looking for advice? Need to vent?

The FA Australia/New Zealand Facebook group has been chatting and supporting each other for many years. Now they’ve adopted FASA and have become our first social media meeting place. All FASA members are invited to stop by, join up and say hi. We’ll post information on upcoming events to that Facebook page as well as to our home website.

FASA acknowledges the generous support of the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund (FARF) in the United States.
