The Bleeding Disorders Alliance Illinois (BDAI) exists to improve the quality of life for persons affected by inherited bleeding disorders. BDAI has been delivering on this mission since 1949 when we were founded by a group of concerned parents whose children were living with hemophilia. BDAI provides and promotes advocacy, consumer services, education and research. We work collaboratively with ...all bleeding disorder providers to support the broad range of needs of people with bleeding disorders.
The needs of our community are vast. Each year, we develop comprehensive educational programs helping individuals and families cope with the many challenges and frustrations they face living with hemophilia or other bleeding disorders and the accompanying complications. BDAI has also proven consistently to be a strong advocacy center for the Illinois bleeding disorder community. We stay on top of the issues and have a good track record of working as collaborators and fair arbitrators of solutions that benefit all involved.
Due to the rarity of bleeding disorders, few of our families are prepared to face the medical, psychological and financial challenges ahead of them. We work each day to help our families overcome these issues and live the quality of life which is achievable today because of the availability of effective and safe products for treatment.
