My Name is Mary Macaluso. I am a survivor of Aplastic Anemia, an extremely rare auto-immune deficiency disease.The purpose of this website is to raise awareness about a treatment for Aplastic Anemia called High- Dose Cyclophosphamide. This treatment could potentially save many lives…



Aplastic Anemia is a rare blood disease that disables your stem cells from producing blood. There are very few substantial treatments for this disease. The treatments that are used have high relapse rates and death rates.

High-Dose Cyclophosphamide has an 80 percent success rate and very minimal chance of relapse if used as primary treatment. It has also shown to be successful in patients who have had ATG treatments.
