Please help me raise awareness about aspergillosis, a condition that I’ve had for about 11 years. Aspergillosis is a term for a range of serious fungal infections, usually in lungs and sinuses. It’s due to the fungus Aspergillus, which is in soil and decaying plant matter.
Any funds donated to Aspergillosis Trust will go directly to the Fungal Infection Trust. This is for much needed research into aspergillosis, to help find better ways of detecting and managing it. Currently as many as 1 in 5 patients have antifungal-resistant aspergillosis – I’m one of them!
Aspergillosis Trust aim to raise awareness so that it is diagnosed and treated earlier, as this helps outcomes. Asthma flare-ups, despite using inhalers correctly? Chest infections not improving with antibiotics? Choking-coughing fits, sometimes with blood? Please see your GP and ask about aspergillosis.
