Aspergillosis Trust is a patient advocacy group. It is run by patients and carers in the UK and the EU, with the support of The National Aspergillosis Centre (NAC) in Manchester, UK.
It is a rare. debilitating and sometimes deadly infection. It can attack people of any age. Aspergillosis Trust (AT) also raise funds for desperately needed research.
Purpose of AT
The purpose of the Aspergillosis Trust is to promote awareness of aspergillosis and raise funding for the Fungal Infection Trust.
Aim of AT
We aim to achieve this purpose, by enlisting the help of celebrities to raise awareness and understanding the condition in various campaigns. In due course this will make Aspergillosis a far more readily recognisable set of conditions, than at present (April 2018).
Once Aspergillosis is better known, it should be recognised and diagnosed by doctors more swiftly throughout the UK, EU and Worldwide. This will enable more people to get the right treatment promptly.
NB:The UK has an existing centre for the diagnosis and treatment of Aspergillosis at the National Aspergillosis Centre at Wythenshawe Hospital, Manchester, UK ( in the North ). Another smaller Aspergillosis clinic runs at Brompton Hospital, London, UK, which is in the process of becoming a specialist centre for the South UK.
NOTE: It is as advocacy group consisting of patients and carers. Any fundraising will go directly to the Fungal Infection Trust.
