Honoring Our Past, Building Our Future
HFA believes paying tribute to and preserving the bleeding disorders community鈥檚 legacy of advocacy, sacrifice and treatment advancements is important. For the past five years, we have been proud to play a role in preserving that history with the 鈥淗onoring Our Past, Building Our Future鈥 history project, where we have collected the significant stories and artifacts which best represent our community. But the project doesn鈥檛 end there.

HFA has made an initial donation of artifacts related to the history of the bleeding disorders community to the Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. This donation, which consists of items generously given by community members,聽is a huge step in formally preserving the history of the bleeding聽disorders community for future generations.聽More information will be made available in the future as this project develops.

Take a moment to read about our inspiration for this project and the details of seeing it to completion by viewing our Case For Support.

Donate Toward History

Submit Artifacts

HFA has collected many documents, articles and artifacts, but is aware there may be more memorabilia stashed in attics all across the country! We are looking for community members and organizations willing to share and work with HFA to preserve a comprehensive record of the community鈥檚 history.

Do you have old family photos depicting the reality of life with a bleeding disorder? Or maybe diaries or journals that reflect your or a loved one鈥檚 personal journey. We鈥檙e looking for personal items as well as newspaper articles, key documents, newsletters, posters from advocacy rallies on Capitol Hill or other artifacts that tell our story of endurance and resilience.

Submit a photo of something you have that may be added to the HFA or Smithsonian collection. A committee will review the submissions and work with you to collect and return items.

Share your historical archives so HFA can continue to shed light on this amazing community.
