Programs and Services

Who We Are

Great Lakes Hemophilia Foundation (GLHF) is a statewide organization. We serve individuals with hemophilia, vonWillebrand disease, and other less known bleeding disorders.

GLHF's programs are designed to educate, support, and advocate for this population. We do this by increasing awareness, ensuring access to needed medical services, and providing relevant information and resources. Our programs and services build a supportive community for these individuals and their families, and promote choices that lead to optimal health so they can live their lives with fewer limitations.

GLHF is here to Help

“We were able to meet many other families with children with bleeding disorders through foundation sponsored events. Knowing we were not alone and sharing stories, treatment tips and ideas helped our entire family cope with the problems of hemophilia. The foundation helped train us to become more independent.” -Ed B., father of a son living with hemophilia
