It’s time to talk about bleeding – Christmas Appeal 2019
Written by Aaron Dennis, November 29, 2019
Help be the difference to women with bleeding disorders this Christmas.
The reality of what #OurCommunity goes through, especially women, was felt to be too important to skip over. That’s why this year, we are focusing our Christmas appeal on women with bleeding disorders and our Talking Red campaign.
Women’s bleeding disorders in particular, can have a huge impact mentally, physically and financially. Yet many people still don’t know that women can be affected by bleeding disorders.
Recent figures from the UKHCDO suggest that actually there are more women now in the UK with a genetic bleeding disorder than men.
It’s a big issue for women like Macey, 18, who live with a bleeding disorder, but live on a fixed income. She dropped out of doing her A levels, and lives in fear of not having enough money to pay for tampons each month. Read more about our appeal and Macey’s story here.
Can you help?
Please help us to raise awareness about women’s bleeding disorders – this Christmas could you make a small (or big) donation to our Christmas Talking Red appeal?
Together we can improve the quality of women’s lives through promoting a better understanding of bleeding disorders and end the stigma of discussing women’s bleeding disorders.
