Meet Finlay Noble – an inspiring young lady with a platelet count of around 10 who was diagnosed last year with ITP. Thanks to the amazing care and expertise at Leeds General Infirmary she is safe and well following a brain bleed in January.
Finlay had been extremely active with sports such as fencing and football, but all this had to stop given her condition and so instead she has channelled her energies into fundraising for platelet research. With her amazing spirit and selflessness, she has organised a cake stall and raffle and raised a significant amount of money – £280, which has then been kindly matched by Braford & Bingley.
Its through the support, commitment and considerable courage of people like Finlay that The Platelet Charity will help to fund research into platelets and help people with bleeding disorders.
