Aplastic Anaemia Trust

The Aplastic Anaemia Trust is a registered charity providing emotional support and information to anyone affected by aplastic anaemia.

What is aplastic anaemia?
The bone marrow is the soft fatty tissue found in the cavities of our bones. Basically it is the “factory” where most of our blood cells – red cells, platelets and white cells – are made. Aplastic anaemia (or bone marrow failure) is a serious rare disease that develops when the bone marrow fails to produce these blood cells.

What are the symptoms of aplastic anaemia?
Patients may have symptoms of anaemia such as paleness, fatigue, shortness of breath on exertion and rapid heart rate (caused by low red cells), excessive bleeding and a tendency to bruise easily (low platelets) and a high susceptibility to infection (lack of white cells).

Description

We offer support to anyone affected by aplastic anaemia (patients, families, friends etc)

The Aplastic Anaemia Trust Patient Support was set up in 1997 by Bryony Partridge whose young daughter Amy had been diagnosed with severe aplastic anaemia.

Amy was diagnosed in 1995 when she was just three years old. She received ALG, ATG, prednisolone and ciclosporin and is currently healthy and remains ‘in remission’.

The AAT's Support offers information to patients and their families; basically to anyone coping with aplastic anaemia.

We have a network of Patient Support members who know exactly what it is like to live with aplastic anaemia. As well as offering emotional support, we aim to raise public awareness of aplastic anaemia.
