Where can I get support for hemophilia?

ANSWER

Many other people have hemophilia, and their advice can be helpful and inspiring, especially if you're just starting to get familiar with the condition.

The National Hemophilia Foundation can connect you to a treatment center near you and to support groups.

And the federal government pays for a network of more than 140 hemophilia treatment centers where you can get treatment, education, and other resources you need.
