We are incredibly pleased to announce that Histio UK have been successful in our application to the National Lottery Community Fund. The fund has awarded Histio UK the sum of £36, 560 for our Histio Communities Project: Histio Connect – Let’s Talk – an inclusive online discussion platform for each of the different Histiocytic disorders.
The platform will provide our “Histio Champions” the opportunity to chat, share their voices, their stories, achievements and memories enabling the opportunity to raise awareness, inspire others, learn more about other parents, patients, families, supporters, and volunteers who shape this rare community.
Our thanks to all our Histio Community Champions and HM Government for making this possible.
