We Are Fanconi Hope

We are a registered national charitable trust set up by parents of Fanconi Anaemia (FA) affected children and clinicians with an interest in FA.

Fanconi Anaemia (FA) is a rare, life-limiting genetic disorder causing bone marrow failure in children and a predisposition to gynaecological, head and neck cancers, together with other complications both in childhood and in later life.

Fanconi Hope is currently fundraising to prolong a 3 year Study into the Long term Effects of Fanconi Anaemia which is being led by Manchester University and wholly funded by Fanconi Hope.

This study funds a UK FA Coordinator, Beth Lee, who will create and maintain a patient-led UK National Patient Registry in order to improve patient care and facilitate research. The Coordinator acts as a point of contact for patients & families, and clinicians & researchers.

Please help us achieve this with donations large or small.

"I believe that we have already shown that this is possible but as the parent of a child with FA and as Chairman of Fanconi Hope I will not rest whilst there is the opportunity for improved treatment for all and ultimately, a cure."~ Bob Dalgleish, Chairman (Fanconi Hope)
