Annabelle's Challenge is the UK's only registered charity for vascular EDS entirely run by volunteers and every penny raised goes a very long way.


During January 2018 we surveyed our members to gain their feedback on the charity and focus areas going forward.


We have utilised the results of the survey and taken on board the concerns of our patients and families to implement a clear vision for the charity over the next three years.


Our four key goals to be delivered by 2021: 

  • Fundraise £200,000 to help deliver sustainable services for patients, families, and health care professionals
  • Education increase awareness about vascular EDS among medical professionals, researchers, and clinicians
  • Collaboration across all NHS Genetic Services to improve patient care and also work with organisations and patient support groups in aid of vascular EDS
  • Research on the natural history of vascular EDS including the provision of a patient registry in alliance with the NHS EDS Diagnostic Service

We rely on donations to help fund our charity to help raise awareness and also provide essential support to families touched by vascular EDS. The majority of the funds raised come from generous donations from people just like you.


It is our commitment that through continued focus and awareness we will one day find preventions, treatments, and ultimately a cure.
