Meet Our Team
We have more than 27 years' experience in hemophilia B addressing unmet needs in our community. Our approach is hands on and family oriented because hemophilia affects the whole family.

He urges the community to “get out there, get involved, and enjoy living life to its fullest.”

Founders: John, Joyce and John Taylor
The Taylors founded the Coalition in 1990 when their son was diagnosed with severe hemophilia B. At age 13, their son John decided to launch a site designed to address the concerns of those within the hemophilia community and to be a resource and advocate for them.
Even if I am only like a little mouse, taking bites around the edge of the cheese, I feel eventually I am going to make a difference. It is going to take a lot of bites and a fair amount of time, but it will happen. Meanwhile, we’ll keep biting away.
