Our Mission

To make quality of life the focal point of treatment for people with Hemophilia B. To empower and educate our members to act as advocates on their own behalf and to ensure they have timely information about their healthcare so they can have the highest quality of life possible.

For over 28 years we have pursued our mission through our extremely family-oriented approach, because hemophilia is a disease that affects the whole family. Our programs bridge the gap and bring patients with hemophilia B together from all over the USA, connecting them with their common bond and empowering them to gain support, lifetime friends, and the knowledge needed to make important life decisions.

Our team members have decades of experience in hemophilia B and interact daily with the hemophilia community via phone, email, social media, and the web.
