The Marfan Trust receives no government or statutory funding and relies solely on supporter donations to fund its support, research and awareness programmes. With the pandemic and the attendant cost burden this has placed upon us, we really need the additional funds that Best Friend and Family Friend membership plans can give us to be certain of our future. So, if you can find it in your hearts to give an extra £3 a month (the cost of one coffee per month) that would go a long way to ensuring we stay around for years to come. £36 will in fact allow us to respond to 2 additional calls received by the Helpline.
