1st September 2012 a young promising lady – Anthonia was taken away by a condition called Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (TTP) – a very rare blood condition.
The Anthonia Oyindamola Folakemi Afelumo Coshare (AOFAC) Foundation was set up in 2013 on the anniversary of her passing.
Anthonia was a vibrant 18 year old, a wonderful daughter, sister and friend. She was academically gifted and having just received outstanding results at her ‘A’ levels was on the verge of going to university when she died.
Anthonia wanted to get into healthcare and to specialise in TTP to help others; we wanted to continue her fight against this condition and keep her memories alive.
We are involved with other organisations in this regards and has varied programs and events throughout the year.
