World Hemophilia Day 2015

Building a family of support

Join us on April 17 to raise awareness about bleeding disorders and the need to build a family of support for those living with them. 

Families come in many forms but they all share the ability to support and advocate. World Hemophilia Day provides an opportunity to talk to your extended family and friends, colleagues, and caregivers to raise awareness and increase support for those living with an inherited bleeding disorder.

You can also go one step further and have a local landmark, a light in your home or office, or your front porch light lit in red on April 17 to show your commitment to the bleeding disorder community.

This year connect the global bleeding disorder family on the World Federation of Hemophilia social media network and encourage your online community to join the global family.
