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.

BDAI is always striving to provide the community with the best resources for helping people manage their or their loved ones bleeding disorders. We have recently added links to two important resources to our website. Under the "Types of Bleeding Disorders" page we now have a link to WFH's eLearning Modules website that covers every single type of bleeding disorder in depth, as well as the effects of inhibitors. And under "Community Support" we have added a new page on NHF's Steps for Living program which helps families manage all the social interactions, medical issues, and life events that are impacted by having a bleeding disorder at all ages. These resources can also be found on the links below.WFH eLearning Modules » NHF Steps for Living »
