This page is dedicated to the ones we have lost to Thalassemia.

Bartolo Cammilleri
My Father and I had a great relationship. He also had Cooley's Anemia(Thalassemia Major). He passed away 7 years ago at the age of 48. He was my strength and support, and I keep him close to my heart always. I miss and love him so much. He helped me get through the rough times when it seemed like I would always be sick and never lead a normal life. He had a great outlook on life. He knew how to have fun and enjoy every day that he had. He owned a Baseball card shop and he loved it. He was a strong man, and when he would get real sick he would make the best of it. He went through so much, he didn't complain. Even when he was diagnosed with liver cancer he didn't complain. He always had a smile on his face, and always showed how much he cared for the one's he loved. I always felt that with my Dad showing me the way, I could make it through anything. I still feel that way and I know he's watching me from heaven. I love you Daddy.
