We are participating in the Hemophilia Walk - a fundraising event to support the Texas Central Hemophilia Association and the National Hemophilia Foundation.
Hemophilia is a bleeding disorder that affects around 400,000 people in the world. There is currently no cure, but scientists are actively engaged in finding cures and improving treatments. People that have hemophilia are not able to produce certain proteins, preventing their blood from clotting as fast as a normal person.
Bryen is a thirteen-year- old boy with severe Hemophilia B (famously carried and by Queen Victoria and passed to her male heirs) that enjoys doing things that other boys his age does. Bryen is active in his local Boy Scout troop and has dreams of earning his Eagle Scout badge. Bryen is an avid video gamer and enjoys Terreria, Pokemon, Super Mario Bros., and other video games where he can expand his imagination and creativity. Bryen is active in his local youth bowling league and has won several trophies and awards.
Every penny raised for the DFW Hemophilia Walk stays in Texas for Texan hemophiliacs. This past year the Hemophilia Walk helped fund:
That’s why we are raising money and we hope that we can count on your support of this exciting event! Thousands of families in our community, and across the country will benefit from your support and the success of the Walk.
Bryen and the rest of Team Awesomesauce thank you for your support.
