On May 8, International Thalassaemia Day, ApoPharma Inc. thinks of the people whose lives are impacted by this condition, and recommits to working on their behalf. As they salute their courage, strength, and accomplishments, they also remember their needs and concerns, and seek to give our best effort in all that we do for the betterment of their daily lives.
ApoPharma announces the winners of the 12th Annual Iron Warriors Art Contest and launches a new website, ironwarriors.ca, that showcases their work. This website has been developed to serve as a resource for young people with thalassaemia, and will be continually updated with stories, activities, and opportunities for uniting community members. At ironwarriors.ca, you may view a slideshow featuring all of the art contest finalists, download the calendar featuring the winning entries, order printed copies of the calendar, and download or order the latest edition of the Iron Warriors Activity Book. The cover and coloring pages of this book feature the artwork of Ana Paula Aroma, a participant in previous Iron Warriors contests and an inspiring young artist who is using her talents to help empower other people with thalassaemia. We hope that in future you too will enter the Iron Warriors Art Contest, and that like Ana Paula you will find ways to use your talents in meaningful ways.
