Blood Brothers: Fellowship, Educate, Advocate, and Support

For men over the age of 18yrs living with bleeding disorders within their lives:  fathers, brothers, and sons, as well as the fathers, brothers, and sons of women and girls affected by bleeding disorders.

The mission of the men’s program is to provide support, empowerment, networking opportunities, and a space to share the knowledge and experiences living with or being a male relative of someone with a bleeding disorder.

  • The program helps to provide mentoring and education to young adults and new fathers so they will feel empowered to tackle challenges that they will face as they grow into adulthood or raise a child with a bleeding disorder.
  • The program also supports older adult men with bleeding disorders and provides them an opportunity to share their wisdom, knowledge, and experiences with young members of the community and allows them to connect with other men with bleeding disorders.
  • The program helps educate all individuals in advocacy issues that participants may need to be informed of, learn about and/or consider while living with a bleeding disorder. The goal is to provide the opportunity to build a strong team of men and boys of all ages, becoming an empowered advocacy voice, for themselves, the community, and the Chapter.
  • The program will provide a gateway to networking with others of similar situations, ages, and bleeding disorders. The goal will be to provide opportunities to build long lasting relationships within the South Carolina community and beyond.
  • The program will strive to organize and host meetings (in-person and virtual), outings, events, and meals in a relaxed setting to allow conversation to flow freely.
  • And most importantly this program will help address and work towards improving not only its members health outcomes but their quality of life as well. From finding solutions to routine but complicated tasks to addressing larger problems with a permanent fix.

We encourage all men in the South Carolina bleeding disorders community to become involved and see how you can benefit from connectivity.

    The Blood Brothers Program for HSC is growing and we are excited to keep expanding our offerings. Last month, we had a candid conversation on several issues participants wished others understood about living with bleeding disorders, primarily hemophilia. This month we are delighted to welcome Jim Stroker (read here) to join us in conversations. 
    Speaker:
    Jim Stroker is a motivational speaker, coach, and parent of two children with special needs. The father of three finds inspiration through his children’s strength and successes. His daughter, Ali, and son, Jake, were in a severe car accident at a young age leaving Ali living with paralysis from the waist down and Jake with a traumatic brain injury. Both are now successful young adults. Despite these challenges, Ali became the first wheelchair bound student to graduate from the NYU Tisch Performing Arts School, and appeared on the Glee Project.
    Watch Jim’s video and get excited as he motivates us to reach our goals in life. View here!
