Summer Camp: Each year, we provide scholarships to send youth to Camp Bold Eagle where kids experience a traditional summer camp while learning the valuable skills they need in order to become independent teens and adults. They learn from each other, from their counselors (many of whom are former campers), and from the many medical volunteers about ways to manage their disorder both medically and socially.
Medical Identifications: We provide medical identifications to all with a significant bleeding disorder, such as hemophilia and VonWillebrand Disease. Free of charge, these identifications are potentially life-saving.
Education: Our Foundation believes that education is a critical component of managing a bleeding disorder, as is interacting and learning from other impacted families. We offer a wide range of educational meetings from learning to advocate for yourself to dealing with insurance to fitness and nutrition.
Advocacy: We actively participate at a local, state, and national level and encourage our members through education and legislative days. Our community has a long history of making an impact on legislation, and telling their story to legislators is vital with critical legislation.
For more than 55 years, The Northwest Ohio Hemophilia Foundation has assisted individuals and families affected by bleeding disorders. Through family networking events, sending youth to a specialized camp, maintaining a family crisis fund, providing medical identifications, facilitating educational workshops, and advocating at the local, state, and national level on critical legislation, our Foundation is committed to helping people manage their condition. Currently we serve more than 2000 individuals within the 22 counties in Northwest Ohio that we serve.
Each year, we raise more than $100,000 for our local community. You can help increase our reach and impact by donating or volunteering. Click here for opportunities to get involved.
