Were you or a family member just diagnosed with a bleeding disorder?
We can help! We can provide information on bleeding disorders, medical services, Hemophilia treatment centers and Hemotologists, medical products and treatments. We can also connect you with other families and persons with bleeding disorders.
The Bleeding Disorders Alliance Illinois (BDAI) supports families affected by inherited bleeding disorders such as Hemophilia and von Willebrand disease by providing its members with the unbiased medical information and resources that allow them to live a healthy and active lifestyle. This neutral information is especially important for families seeking answers and support soon after the initial diagnosis.
BDAI also fosters a welcoming community for families to meet, interact and share information and advice. Through education and support, BDAI helps its members advocate on their own behalf with public and private insurance providers, medical services and government agencies, while representing the bleeding community in the world at large.
