A diagnosis of aplastic anaemia is frightening - not only because it's an illness you've probably never heard of before, but also because it is so rare and unpredictable. But you are not alone. You can join our supportive patient and family community today to make sense of your diagnosis and what lies ahead. It's growing and is nearly 1,600-member strong - this is people like you, who've been affected by  aplastic anaemia or another rare bone marrow failure, such as paroxysmal nocturnal haemoglobinuria (PNH) or dyskeratosis congenita.

On this site you will find lots of inspiring stories from people just like you, so read on.

Join our vibrant friendly and supportive member-only Facebook group

Our closed and moderated Facebook group is safe, collaborative, supportive and growing. Here, you can safely discuss anything that is playing on your mind - whether it's your diagnosis of aplastic anaemia, a bone marrow transplant, things to take to the hospital with you, how to care for a loved one with AA or journey to recovery. Here you will also find like-minded people actively blogging about bone marrow transplantation and practical discussions about travel insurance, staying in hospital during treatment or sharing of stories and experiences. It's the sort of community where the only silly question is the one unasked!

This is a wonderful support site...the more people we have the more information we have. I'm often blown away by the knowledge on here. It's so helpful. It's great to help people struggling. It's also wonderful to hear people's stories further down the line: babies being born, people going on to uni, good luck!

Please get in touch if you'd like to join the community and share your story.
