AA voices is the area of our website where people affected by aplastic anaemia share the stories they feel are important, in their own words.
If you would like to tell your story here, please get in touch with Ellie, Comms and Fundraising Manager, by emailing [email protected],uk. We would like to hear from anyone with a personal experience of aplastic anaemia - whether you are or have been a patient yourself, or you are a friend or family member whose life has been affected. There is no minimum commitment - you might like to write regularly or just blog once!
Everyone's experience of aplastic anaemia is very different - and we would like to reflect this by sharing a full range of experiences. In particular, we would love to hear from people who feel their experience is currently underrepresented on our website: for example this might include someone who is currently on watch and wait, or a family member who is coming to terms with the loss of a loved one. If you don't see a story like yours on our website and would like to provide that voice - we would be very grateful.
Mental health issues around serious illness are complex. The medical doctors do their best to heal the physical self but wellness is about the whole self. For young people with few life experiences a serious illness is hard.
