The Coalition for Hemophilia B strives to make quality of life the focal point of treatment for individuals with Hemophilia B in the 21st century
The Coalition for Hemophilia B was founded in 1990 by Joyce and John Taylor when their son was diagnosed with moderate/severe Hemophilia B. Formed as a way of providing information about treatment options to patients and their families, as well as instigating and funding research and product development, the Coalition provides information about treatment that will improve quality of life, works to define new treatment modalities, and support efforts to eliminate the disease.
