The Fungal InfectionTrust
The Fungal Infection Trust (formerly the Fungal Research Trust) is a small charity based in the UK registered in 1991. It partly funds the Aspergillus Website which provides information and support for patients, doctors and scientists who deal with aspergillus infections. Aspergillus infections are often fatal and are fungal diseases which can affect patients undergoing treatments for cancer, transplants, asthma, cystic fibrosis, CGD and those who may be immune suppressed for whatever reason. The charity aims to promote education about aspergillus infections, to support scientific research into aspergillus, to improve its diagnosis and treatment and to support the training of specialised scientists working in this area (mycology).

My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting my page.

On Saturday 19 August I'll be cycling from Aberdeen to Nairn in aid of Fungal Infection Trust and in memory of my niece Steph Smith.

Saturday would have been Steph's 30th Birthday had her life not been cut short by an aggressive fungal infection age 21. Steph was about to complete her Primary Teaching course in Aberdeen and return to Nairn, her home town, as a Teacher with all the promise in the world.

To prevent the loss of others more research is needed to improve diagnostics and treatment of aspergillosis and fungal infections in general.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
