I'm participating in the Unite For Bleeding Disorders Walk - a fundraising event to support those living with bleeding disorders in my community. Inherited bleeding disorders are a life-long condition. Currently there is no cure, but scientists are actively engaged in finding cures and improving treatments.
In December of 2015, my son, Jayden, was diagnosed with Hemophilia B and Von Willebrand Disease. With no diagnosed family history of either bleeding disorder, I was completely lost. Jayden was treated at The Jimmy Everest Center in Oklahoma City. There, the staff helped us understand Jayden's diagnosis and also gave us contact information for the Oklahoma Hemophilia Foundation. Through the Foundation, we have been able to build bonds and lifelong friendships with other members within our bleeding community. The training and programs offered to us, would not be possible without the help of donations from individuals just like YOU!
That’s why I’m raising money and I hope that I can count on your support of this exciting event! Thousands of families in our community, and across the country will benefit from your support and the success of the Walk.
My personal goal is to raise as much as possible for this worthy cause. I’m asking for your help to reach my goal. Will you make a tax-deductible contribution by donating what you can? It’s fast and easy to make a donation right here on my fundraising page.
Thank you in advance for your support and together, we will make a difference.
