For many, including myself, a world without bleeding disorders is simply a dream. Thousands of kids and adults affected face internal bleeding, costly treatments and lifelong infusions.
As a woman living with Von Willebrand's Disease, I'm all in to help end bleeding disorders. Von Willebrand Disease is a heredity bleeding disorder characterized by bleeding from mucous membranes (e.g., mouth, nose, throat, gastrointestinal tract) and skin surfaces. Excessive bruising, nose bleeds, heavy menstrual cycles and excessive bleeding following extraction of tteeth or tonsils are the most common symptoms of Von Willebrand's Disease. While it can affect both males and females equally, this condition can be more complicated for women because of obstetrics and gynecological issues.
My personal goal is to raise as much as possible for the bleeding disorder community. Will you help me reach my fundraising goal? It’s easy — just click “donate” to make a secure donation.
Every dollar stays within our community and supports critical initiatives such as funding research to find better treatments, educating medical providers on the latest innovations and care, ensuring families have access to quality healthcare and providing access to the best educational resources available.
Thank you in advance for your support and united, we will make a difference.
The National Hemophilia Foundation is dedicated to finding better treatments and cures for inheritable bleeding disorders and to preventing the complications of these disorders through education, advocacy and research.
