Our Mission

The Bleeding Disorder Foundation of Washington advocates for the health and care of children and adults affected by the challenges of hemophilia, von Willebrand Disease and other bleeding disorders.

Our mission is to embrace a holistic approach to educating our supporters and empowering those within our community to bring a voice to our cause. Together we will find a cure.

Our vision is to create a movement. A body of people that will give a voice to our message….to trigger an awareness and influence those that can to support our cause. By doing so we will advance our ability to help bring an end to all bleeding disorders and associated pain and suffering.

We serve the 70,000 bleeding disorder patients in Washington State. We do this by empowering young families at I-Vy Jr. programs, encouraging kids to be independent at Camp I-Vy, launching teens into life through I-Vy Leaders, bolstering community through Blood Brothers, and advocating for access to medication and affordable care. By serving our community with these goals in mind, the BDFW believes that each bleeding disorder patient in Washington has the chance to thrive and live their best lives.
