Funny Blood raises awareness of rare blood conditions called Platelet Function Disorders (PFDs). We signpost information to support families living with the little-known condition and fundraise for the ongoing care of sufferers at the Haemophilia Unit in Birmingham Children’s Hospital.


Funny Blood was founded by Ruby Edwards in 2009 when her son was diagnosed with Platelet Function Disorder and Thrombocytopenia. Ruby’s motivation was to help her son, and those like him, by doing something positive. The name – Funny Blood – originated from the way she described her son’s blood to him and his sister.

We’re bringing Funny Blood to the public eye with events and more

Find out what we do to raise awareness, support families and fundraise for the ongoing care of those living with Platelet Function Disorders
