March is Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month

For over 30 years, the Hemophilia community has recognized March unofficially as "Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month." The name originally came from a 1986 Proclamation by President Ronald Regan, the impact and message as always been about bleeding disorders in general, and embracing the history from which the hemophilia community originates.

We've come a long way since the 70's when hemophilia treatments first began being used mainstream. The community has endured and suffered it's fair share of heartache and loss. Treatments today are improved vastly, and breakthrough treatments are in development as we speak to help the hemophilia community with our bleeding disorders.

Over the next 31 days, let's pause to reflect, taking a glimpse back, while straining forward and embracing new horizons in bleeding disorders. Reconnect with family members, share old photos and post on social to support someone you love with a bleeding disorder.

The follow list of things to do comes from the Hemophilia Federation of America.
