It’s time for the Bloody Fun Run!! Every year our family and friends jump into this event to fight back, to give Hemophilia a sucker punch!   Our boys, Sammy and Louie, both have Severe Hemophilia A.  Sammy was diagnosed after suffering a life threatening hemorrhage when he was 4 days old and Lou was diagnosed at birth due to the family history.  Hemophilia is the congenital absence of Factor 8 which is critical for the blood clotting process.  As a result, these boys must be constantly monitored for internal and uncontrolled bleeding! They are fun, active boys that love to run, jump, and tumble so it keeps life a little too interesting at times! We are so thankful for the extra support and care that the Bleeding Disorder Foundation of Washington provides! Money raised for this event sponsors family support groups, camp where kids learn to self infuse, research into exciting new treatments, advocacy for access to care at the state and federal level, face time with the pediatric nurse, and so many more educational programs! Sammy receives daily infusions of IV factor 8 through his port while Lou is on an every other day schedule. Upon being diagnosed with this disease we have found that it is one of the most expensive diseases to treat and it lasts throughout your lifetime.  We passionately advocate for healthcare due to this financial burden and wanting to ensure an amazing future for our boys! Thanks for joining with us again on this important journey! It truly takes a village to survive life with Hemophilia! We couldn’t do it without you! 

Please help me to build awareness for bleeding disorders while supporting the BDFW's mission to support research . Every donation counts & together we can make a difference. Thank you!
