Get involved

Donate time, money, advice, support – every little thing helps give hope to people with a bleeding disorder.

Make a difference

Share stories and advice, campaign for change. We're in this together.

Become part of the family

We're united through blood, and we're there for each other no matter what.

Living with a bleeding disorder is never black and white. And it’s not all blood-red either. Life after diagnosis may start out hard, but we learn by doing, making mistakes, asking questions and surrounding ourselves with people who understand.

Then, slowly, it just becomes life again. Because a bleeding disorder shouldn’t define who we are, what we do or how we feel.

Through our community, we find the freedom, opportunity and fun in life after diagnosis.
