Our friend was unfortunately diagnosed with AA back in August 2018. Having learnt more on the condition we have grouped together to raise funds to help those afflicted by this rare and life threatening illness.

In May 2022 we will be taking on a 15k Tough Mudder challenge. 

What your money will help do;
Fund Research
This time last year, people with aplastic anaemia were contacting us daily in sadness and frustration. As the world celebrated new Covid-19 vaccines, our community were stuck, not knowing if the vaccines were safe or effective for them. 

But in November, we were able to announce that Covid-19 vaccines do work for people with aplastic anaemia. Funding this research cost £25,000.

This year we'll uncover more detail about the response to Covid-19 vaccines in people with aplastic anaemia, and investigate new treatment options, that could offer hope to more people, and improve quality of life for patients and their families. 

Provide support
-Provide a young child with a story book that explains what aplastic anaemia is and what they can expect from a long stay in hospital - making the long and difficult treatment less frightening.
-Make sure there is always some one on the end of the phone. Having someone to talk to who understands, who you don't have to explain your condition to again and again. Our hotline ensures no one is alone.

Thank you for your support.
