Fanconi Hope is currently fundraising for further research, in particular for ground-breaking Proton Beam Therapy research aimed at improving the treatment of the ‘difficult cancers’ that affect so many people living with Fanconi Anaemia.

The first UK Proton Beam Therapy facility is in the final stages of commissioning at the Christie Proton Therapy Centre in Manchester and our Study Proposal has the support of the Clinical Director of the Centre, who says “It is very likely that patients with DNA damage response defects, such as Fanconi anaemia, would be considered eligible for treatment with proton therapy (should they require radiation therapy for cancer), with the aim of lessening the risk of side effects. The more we know about the biology of proton-induced damage in these tissues, the sooner we will be able to translate findings into the clinic and influence future treatment strategies with proton therapy in this group of patients”.

Please help us achieve this with donations large or small.

When you donate to Fanconi Hope you can be sure that the money will be spent responsibly and in ways that will benefit families affected by Fanconi Anaemia.

  • Our 3 parent trustees and 3 clinician trustees all give their time voluntarily
  • Every penny of the funds raised that we apply to research in the UK does exactly that. We have no management overhead associated with this as we have an arrangement in place with our US counterpart organisation, the Fanconi Anaemia Research Fund, to make use of their 15 strong scientific advisory board (which includes international representation) to identify, monitor and review appropriate research projects.
  • We have been very fortunate in securing the services of the Duchess of Devonshire as our Patron to oversee the work of the Charity.
