Each year Hemophilia Federation of America honors the service of special individuals who have gone above and beyond in support of the bleeding disorders community. HFA’s 2020 awards were presented during a virtual ceremony on Aug. 25, 2020. HFA celebrates these individuals.
Hemophilia of South Carolina, Sue Martin, Executive Director
Member Organization Spotlight Award
HFA wishes to recognize aÂ member organizationÂ with a true passion for service to their community.Â This award honors an organization that has created an environment within their membership that engages members, continually promotes education and consistently encourages self-advocacy.
Hemophilia of South Carolina continually goes above and beyond for their members, especially given that they only have one staff person – Executive Director Sue Martin. Their South Carolina Hemophilia and Bleeding Disorders Advocacy Coalition has allowed HSC to advocate across their large state.
Hemophilia of South Carolina travels state-wide to meet with their members and provide services and events. They are known to be the most family-like chapter, greeting with hugs and support for each other while teaching self-advocacy with their ambassador programming, education and supportive services.
HFA is proud to recognize this strong family-friendly organization. Way to go Sue Martin!
