March is nationally recognized as Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month. Join NHF in celebrating and honoring the bleeding disorders community. In 2016, thanks to NHF's advocacy efforts, March was officially designated as Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month.
What originally started as the Red Tie Challenge has grown and evolved into a month-long celebration of the bleeding disorders community. During Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month, we invite members, friends, and supporters of the bleeding disorders community to join us in raising critical awareness and funds to improve the lives of those diagnosed with a bleeding disorder.
We have advocated for the needs and interests of people affected by hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, and other bleeding disorders for almost 60 years. With our volunteer advocates, we have educated elected officials and others in government about the unique needs of people with bleeding disorders. As a result of efforts at the federal level, millions of dollars in government funding has been used to improve medical care, services, education, and safety and surveillance of blood and blood products.
This March, let's raise awareness of bleeding disorders--and have some fun!

WEAR RED: Sport your favorite red shirt, vintage camp shirt, or even your red #NHFShoes. Get the conversation started in your local community.
Bleeding disorders result when the blood’s ability to form a clot at the site of blood vessel injury is impaired. Find information on inherited bleeding disorders, such as hemophilia, von Willebrand disease and rare factor deficiencies.
Connect with other families affected by bleeding disorders in your area through NHF's chapter network.
