Over the last few months my younger sister Ellen has been diagnosed with an ultra rare condition called Aplastic Anemia.

I am fundraising in her name to help fund the Aplastic Anemia Trust. The Aplastic Anemia Trust is the only charity in the UK dedicated to funding research into this very rare disease. This includes recently research into covid vaccines and how that may effect AA patients.

In addition, the charity has a wonderful community of people effected by this condition who have been sharing their stories, which have been incredibly insightful.
The website is also full of lots of incredibly helpful resources and further stories from other AA patients. Consider learning more about this condition from the website! (https://www.theaat.org.uk/vision-and-mission)

I hope you will consider donating to this cause and help them to find further cures and treatments to this ultra rare disease!
