We Are Committed To A Cure
Our mission is to improve the quality of life and assist persons affected by inherited bleeding disorders by providing education, advocacy, support services and by promoting research.
The Louisiana Hemophilia Foundation was established in 1976 to help Louisiana residents with hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, and other bleeding disorders, lead normal and productive lives. We are a 501 (C) 3 Organization.
Our funding comes from a variety of sources that include fundraising events such as the golf tournament, skeet shoot and poinsettia sale. Additionally, pharmaceutical and home health companies make donations and sponsor events. We also receive funding from the Huey and Angelina Wilson Foundation. Another great source of our funding are the individual and family membership fees and donations from affected families and their friends.
