About the Scholarship

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

Tim Kennedy (1962- 2011) Those who knew Tim remember his ability to make almost anyone smile and share a hearty laugh. Though life had dealt him a rough hand, Tim kept an air about him that was truly inspiring. As a father and husband, the love he showed his two children and wife knew no bounds. As a friend, he was always ready to listen, share and comfort – most often with his signature sense of humor. As a member of the bleeding disorders community, Tim was devoted to helping his peers look past their health conditions and enjoy every moment of life for all it’s worth.
