Giving Tuesday

 

Giving Tuesday is a global campaign to encourage charitable giving. By donating the Lone Star Bleeding Disorders Foundation on Giving Tuesday, you are making an impact on families in South Texas with Hemophilia, von Willebrand Disease, and other rare bleeding disorders. 

 

Your support enables us to provide programs like Camp Ailihpomeh, a summer camp for boys with bleeding disorders, where patients like Kyle took a huge step towards independence by learning to infuse his medication at the age of 7. 

 

Programs like the Texas Bleeding Disorders Conference brings families across the state together for a weekend of education and networking. Families like the Clawsons feel supported and empowered when they attend Chapter events and connect with other families going through similar issues. And for families whose child has spent a week in the hospital with a dangerous bleed, we are able to provide financial assistance through our Helping Hands Program.

 

You can make a difference by giving on Giving Tuesday!
