How can you help?
You can help spread awareness and educate yourself on the WFH website www.wfh.org
There is plenty of information on their site – including different types of bleeding disorders like Glanzmann’s Thrombasthenia and how they differ from Hemophilia.
You could give blood or platelets, at some point in their lives people with bleeding disorders may need a platelet or blood transfusion. You could save their life! If you are good at fundraising or would like to donate, there are also ways to do that on the official site.
