On March 1, the Nebraska Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) kicked off an awareness and advocacy campaign that supports Nebraskans affected by bleeding disorders, including hemophilia and von Willebrand disease.
Navigating a chronic disease, especially a rare one, can be difficult, as there are often many choices that must be made when it comes to treatments, therapy options, medical guidance, education and more. But thanks to funding provided by Community Health Charities of Nebraska (CHC-NE) donors, families can receive crucial support from a care center that specifically works with their condition, giving them access to support in a variety of areas and helping them make decisions.
This summer, children will be attending summer camps put on by five of Community Health Charities of Nebraska’s charities. These camps give them the traditional summer camp experience while also allowing them to meet and spend time with other kids who share the same medical needs and experiences they do.
