Our Mission

To raise awareness for and advocate on behalf of persons with bleeding disorders and their families; provide education and supportive services; and promote ongoing research to improve the quality of life for those affected.

Our Vision

To be recognized as a leading organization providing valued services; as ambassadors of public outreach to enlighten and foster an understanding of what matters most to those affected by hemophilia and bleeding disorders; and to be our community’s first choice in partnership to achieve their highest potential through empowerment, connection to their community and being part of the solutions that affect them the most, until a cure is achieved.

About Hemophilia of South Carolina

Hemophilia of South Carolina (HSC) is a 501 (C) 3 Non-Profit organization and is a Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) and a Chapter Member of Hemophilia Federation of America (HFA). HSC was founded in 1973 by a group of parents interested in promoting awareness, providing group support, and assisting other national hemophilia organizations. The organization for 42 years existed as all-volunteer; providing programs and education, support, and advocacy for access to care at the state’s capitol. Today, HSC serves all 46 counties in the state, currently providing education and support services to over 900 individual members and their families in 38 counties. HSC provides the most current information and education in topics related to bleeding disorders, treatment therapies, insurance, and advocacy. Today, HSC has one full time executive director, a full time development and communications coordinator, and an advocacy consultant, but relies on a strong volunteer base of it’s board of directors and members. Without our volunteers, we could not serve our mission.
