There are a number of programs and resources available to assist with the financial burden of living with a bleeding disorder. The Hemophilia Foundation of Maryland continues to advocate on behalf of our members to expand access.

Milton Doug Hiteshew Memorial Scholarship provides financial assistance to residents of Maryland and students attending college in the state who have hemophilia or Von Willebrand Disease or are immediate family of such people. This program is open to students who have hemophilia or Von Willebrand Disease and their siblings, children, or parents.
Applicants must be 1) Maryland residents who are entering or attending a community college, junior college, 4year college, university, or vocational school in any state; or 2) students who have attended a Maryland school for at least 1 year.

Selection is based on those essays, academic goals, transcripts of current academic work, volunteer work, and letters of recommendation.

MedicAlert services ensure that emergency responders and hospital staff get your up-to-date medical information the moment they need it so they can make informed decisions about your treatment and care. MedicAlert has several types of memberships. Please visit www.medicalert.org for more information.

HFM will help cover the cost of MedicAlert services up to $50. To receive assistance individuals must receive prior approval by emailing info@hfmonline.org or calling the HFM office at 410-661-2307 and then submitting a receipt for reimbursement to the HFM office within 60 days of purchasing MedicAlert.

It is important for individuals with bleeding disorders to participate in some form of physical activity. Being physically active helps to strengthen one’s muscles, bones, and joints. One of the many benefits of having a strong, healthy body can be a reduction in the number of joint bleeding episodes an individual might experience.

HFM provides grant funding for bleeding disorder patients to enroll in physical activities such as swimming, yoga, golf, etc.
