Shortly, our former Vice-Chair, Catherine Fowler and our former Medical Advisor, Mr. Graham Cooper will launch The Aortic Dissection Charitable Trust.

To avoid any potential confusion, we would like to make clear for our members and supporters that this new venture is completely separate from the national patient association AD Awareness UK & Ireland and our successful Think Aorta campaign.

We are sorry that our friends Catherine and Graham left us last December in order to start a new AD charity of their own, but we wish them well in this new venture.

We are sure that our paths will cross in the future as we continue our vital work for the benefit of AD patients and their families.
