Fanconi Anaemia Australia
Who is Fanconi Anaemia Australia?
Fanconi Anaemia Australia provides a variety of support services to families suffering Fanconi Anaemia, in addition to providing broad-based education doctors, carers, families and the general public. Fanconi Anaemia Australia was first established in February 2006 by Alan Howard-Jones as an Incorporated Association (FA Australia Incorporated). Alan's wife Charisse (now deceased) was a sufferer of Fanconi Anaemia, and following their attendance at Camp Sunshine in Maine USA in 2005, Alan founded the organisation to provide support to Australian families and to assist in increasing public awareness of the disorder. The organisation was restructured in 2007 as a Public company called Fanconi Anaemia Australia Ltd
Donate Blood in the name of Fanconi Anaemia Australia
We need your help to donate blood to the Australian Red Cross Blood Service
There is a national shortage of blood, platelets and plasma in Australia, and although there is much publicity on this issue, it is never as noticable as when you are on the receiving end.
Therefore, Fanconi Anaemia Australia have established a Club Red Group at the Australian Red Cross Blood Service for which friends and family of Fanconi anaemia patients can donate blood for this important cause.
To join our Club Red group, simply click on the link provided, and join the group Fanconi Anaemia Australia. You will require your donor ID number which is printed on your membership card.
From then on, all your blood donations will be included in a national tally exclusively for our Club Red Group.
