Since WAD 2018 a group of patients concerned about the issues that were raised by World Aspergillosis Day 2018 and from their own experiences when getting a diagnosis and treatment, formed the Aspergillosis Trust in May 2018.
The Aspergillosis Trust is intended to be an awareness and advocacy group that supports the Fungal Infection Trust by fundraising for research into new diagnostics and treatment specifically for people with aspergillosis.
In a very short time the Aspergillosis Trust (AT) has
- built a website
- formed an active group on Facebook that everyone is more than welcome to join to help with their work.
- a series of events in the month leading up to World Aspergillosis Day.
- Designed and commissioned a range of awareness – promoting goods
As a result AT has already raised thousands of pounds for the Fungal Infection Trust (FIT). All funds raised go directly to the FIT, no money is retained by AT as all individuals donate their precious time and energy at no cost.
