Bleeding Disorders

22

As a foundation dedicated to the bleeding disorders community, we look for opportunities to work with all bleeding disorders.

Bleeding disorders are determined by the inability to form a sustainable blood clot. They are characterized by extended bleeding after injury, surgery, trauma or menstruation. The inability to form a clot can be caused by certain defects of clotting proteins and platelets in the blood.  There are 13 clotting factors produced in the body. If any of those clotting factors are defective or deficient, a person’s ability to form a sustainable clot is affected and a bleeding disorder can result (mild, moderate or severe).

In the resource tab you can find more information about bleeding disorders.
