Mar 18: Celebrating 40 years of service and community - a special thank you from the President of the Society

A special thank you from the President 

This year marks the 40th Anniversary of the Thalassaemia Society of NSW and I want to pay special tribute to the wonderful people who have dedicated their time to establishing and contributing to the success and longevity of the Society for these past 40 years.

We will be forever grateful to the foundation members for their determination, passion and commitment for establishing the Thalassaemia Society back in 1978. On behalf of all the members, past and present, we owe you our gratitude and heartfelt thanks.
Since that foundation, the Thalassaemia Society of NSW has been a pillar of support for many patients and their families and friends as they have come to grips with understanding and managing the impacts of Thalassaemia and Sickle Cell Anaemia in their daily lives. The Thalassaemia Society of NSW has supported people through some of the toughest of times and it has been at the centre of education and advocacy.
Over the past 40 years, the Thalassaemia Society of NSW has raised huge amounts of money for medical research, medical equipment, social & respite activities and resources to improve the treatment centres for patients. All this success has been achieved from the many people that have donated and volunteered their time and energy to our important cause for over 40 years.

I want to thank each and every person who has dedicated their time either by serving on the Committee, volunteering at our functions and events or donating generously to our cause.  Our success has been built on the back of your efforts and commitment and I wish to pay tribute to you.
As we enter our 40th Anniversary, I believe it is more important than ever that we unite and work towards growing and supporting the Thalassaemia Society.  In order to continue to succeed and to honour those who have given so much in the past, I ask for your support and assistance in helping make this year a big year of celebration and to help us in our plans as we try to improve and grow the Thalassaemia Society of NSW into the future.
