Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month

March is the first-ever Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month. Join us this week in taking the Red Tie Challenge and learn more about these disorders.

Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month

 

More than 3 million Americans suffer from bleeding disorders, like hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, or rare factor deficiencies.

Hemophilia is a bleeding disorder where your blood doesn’t clot normally and can be fatal in emergencies.

The Scope of Hemophilia

 

von Willebrand disease is a bleeding disorder caused by low levels of clotting protein in your blood.

Join us and those across America taking the Red Tie Challenge and help start a conversation about bleeding disorders.

Fighting for Endometriosis Awareness Month

Endometriosis Awareness Month

March is Endometriosis Awareness Month. Endometriosis is a disorder in which tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside the uterus.

What is Endometriosis?

 

Endometriosis affects 176 million women from 15 to 49 years old worldwide.

The Reach of Endometriosis

 

Endometriosis isn’t caused by your lifestyle, but the severe pain it causes can hurt your quality of life.

Hurting Your Quality of Life

 

28% of women with endometriosis suffer from infertility.

Fighting the Effects of Endometriosis

 

Women with endometriosis usually aren’t diagnosed for 7 to 11 years, preventing many from having kids or living normal lives.

Identifying Endometriosis

 

Women usually see 7 doctors before endometriosis treatment starts. Raising awareness of what’s normal in teens and women can help!

Find a march or host a Yellow Tutu Tea Party and help fight endometriosis.
