HAW 2010

Thank you for your support of Haemophilia Awareness Week 2010.

Haemophilia Awareness Week was held this year from 10-16th October. Haemophilia Foundation Australia (HFA) and Haemophilia Foundations around the country worked together with our supporters to raise awareness about inherited bleeding disorders. The theme this year was “Life Challenges ~ the real issues”.

We had a fantastic response and would sincerely like to thank each and every person that helped us raise awareness of the challenges faced every day by people with a bleeding disorder and celebrate the ways that they overcome these challenges.

We had incredible support from 50 schools, hospitals and local communities across the country that held events and displayed promotional materials and information about bleeding disorders. We also had individuals taking action on Facebook and other social media sites, which raised the profile of this important cause.

We would love to hear about any activities or stories from awareness week so we can share them with our supporters. If you would like to share your story, please contact Janine on jstaunton@haemophilia.org.au

Our Haemophilia Awareness Week newsletter is still available for download below. Read personal stories about the challenges of being a parent or growing up with a bleeding disorder and information about haemophilia and von Willebrand disorder.
