Impact VHF serves the bleeding disorder community throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.  This year we have touched 100's of lives by:
  1. Strengthening our advocacy presence with a new Advocacy Committee Chair, webinars, and an increase utilization of VoterVoice.
  2. Helping several families in financial crisis with medical bills, rent, utilities, etc.
  3. Continuing our outreach to school personnel and the general community through conference presentations, exhibits, health fairs, and targeted community events.
  4. Offering several quality programs, including summer and family camp, annual meeting, Adult Retreat, Family Overnight, and First Step Picnic.

Some of our goals for the upcoming year include: increasing individual donations, increasing the number of kids we send to camp, improving our social networking ability, strengthening our advocacy efforts, raising greater awareness of bleeding disorders among the general public, and strengthening our special events.

The Virginia Hemophilia Foundation (VHF) formerly known as the United Virginia Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation (UVC-NHF) was founded in 1975 by a group of concerned parents, patients, doctors and nurses with the common goal of making life easier for persons affected by hemophilia and related bleeding disorders.  At that time, treating bleeding episodes was time consuming and not very efficient.  Many bleeding episodes required lengthy hospital stays and left permanent damage.  Life was difficult at best and pain was a way of life. Today, treatment is much better and most families are able to manage this condition through home treatment.  Hospital stays are few and far between.  However, living with a chronic illness still presents challenges. The cost of treating hemophilia can easily run over $200,000 per year.  Insurance may be difficult to obtain and job choices are still somewhat limited. VHF continues to have a strong presence and provides a variety of support services, i.e. educational and support programs, advocacy opportunities, an annual meeting, family and summer camps, a quarterly newsletter, medic alert bracelets, seminars for parents, teens and adults, etc.

CEO Statement
This is an exciting time for VHF.  VHF is financially sound, has seen a significant increase in quality and quantity of programs over the last several years, and has seen greater community participation. In fact, several programs have needed a waiting list and/or have had over 100 participants. We continue to have a strong advocacy presence and outstanding board members who work hard to serve the needs of the bleeding disorder community through education, advocacy, and support for research for a cure.  We are seen by the national hemophilia groups as innovative and progressive.  I hope to work with you as we continue to strengthen and grow VHF’s capacity to serve you.
