This event is for all adults, 18+, diagnosed with a bleeding disorder along with spouses, and mothers of girls diagnosed with a bleeding disorder.

While the agenda is still being finalized, there will be a Blood Brotherhood Track and a SOAR Track so that you can connect with the people who share similar bleeding disorders and challenges related to your bleeding disorder.
