Eric Delson was the Vice President of Marketing and Clinical Services for Caremark. As a person with
hemophilia, Eric did not allow challenges to deter him from any goals he set out to achieve. Although limitations were well-known to Eric, these same limitations were the fuel that drove him to enhance the lives of others who were living with hemophilia. Through his example of leadership, commitment, determination and compassion, Eric’s positive influence touched many who had the privilege of knowing him and others who did not. It is with the memory of this great man and the spirit of the young mind that this scholarship was founded.
The Eric Delson Memorial Scholarship Program was created to support and encourage education for students diagnosed with hemophilia or von Willebrand disease.
Students clinically diagnosed with hemophilia or von Willebrand disease are eligible to apply for the Eric Delson Memorial Scholarship Program.
HFA is also awarding a grant up to $1,500 in honor of Eric Delson to help a student, in grades 7 through 12 who has diagnosed vWD or hemophilia, pay for private school.
