About the Scholarship

The BioMatrix Memorial Scholarship Program is administered in partnership with the Hemophilia Federation of America (HFA).

Mark Coats (1956-1963) Just a young child when he passed from hemophilia-related issues, Mark was born in an entirely different era of bleeding disorders treatment and was not able to live a near-normal life as most people with hemophilia do today. With his smiling eyes and sweet grin, we are reminded that every child deserves a chance to lead a full and happy life. We look to Mark as a reminder of what living with a bleeding disorder was like not that long ago and how blessed we are to have the treatments and medical advances we have today.
