What is a bleeding disorder?

This term is a catch-all name for more than fifteen different disorders, including hemophilia and von Willebrand Disease, that prevent blood from clotting properly.  These are rare, genetic disorders and are never contagious; but, can be very challenging when trying to live a healthy life.

The Utah Hemophilia Foundation provides a broad range of services to individuals and families dealing with bleeding disorders.  Because bleeding disorders are rare, individuals often feel alone.  The UHF creates networking opportunities to bring people with bleeding disorders together for support and learning.
