Archie's Army

Archie suffers from a rare life threatening genetic condition,  Diamond Blackfan Anaemia (DBA) where his bone marrow fails to produce red blood cells. This means that Archie relies on blood transfusions every 3 weeks just to stay alive.

A result of having blood transfusions means a build up of iron in his body, if not treated this would mean that the iron would start to attack his organs starting with the liver and heart and ultimately would be fatal. To control this Archie has to have a needle inserted in to his leg every night which is attached to a pump that pumps medication in to him while he sleeps. This breaks the iron down but it hurts

We have set up Archie's Army to fund expenses for Archie's specialist medical care and to make donations to causes affecting Archie's condition  and treatment paths.
