Jacob & Joshua were born with Severe Hemophilia A, a bleeding disorder. When the Illinois walk started in 2010, the boys had just started their first year in tee-ball so we decided on the team name Double J Sluggers! All funds raised support the Bleeding Disorders Alliance Illinois, which helps families affected by inherited bleeding disorders. Please consider making a donation today or joining our team and walking with us. This cause is near and dear to us and we are TRULY grateful for any donations.
The National Hemophilia Foundation is dedicated to finding better treatments and cures for inheritable bleeding disorders and to preventing the complications of these disorders through education, advocacy and research. "Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success."
