Welcome to the Team Messina walk page!

2021 continues to be uncertain, but if you are able, we hope you can help support an organization that is very important to our family. 

Nancy is still the Board President of NEHA, so it continues to be a big part of our family story. The NEHA community has given us 20 years of support, education and advocacy, enabling us to successfully manage Matt's bleeding disorder. Right now, NEHA is doing everything possible to sustain daily operations and provide services to the bleeding disorders community. While there’s a lot of uncertainty, we know that we need to adapt fast to our changing reality. Now, more than ever, our community needs us. And we need you.

We are also excited to report that there has (finally!) been a lot of recent progress in the treatment of hemophilia. Everything ranging from products that last longer to possible cures with gene therapy are showing positive results in clinical trials, and many are currently available in the marketplace. After using the same Factor replacement product for 10 years, Matt switched to one of the new, longer lasting products last spring. It has been a big decision and we were only prepared to make this switch because of the information and resources that NEHA provided us. Every dollar we raise for NEHA will help families with bleeding disorders navigate and make educated decisions regarding all of this new, complicated information. 

Please consider making a donation to our team. 100% of your donation will support kids and adults living with bleeding disorders in our New England community.

We believe that, together, we can create a world free of bleeding disorders – that’s why we Unite and walk.

Thank you for your support!  

Team Messina -  Matt, Darren, Nancy, Michael and Nick
