Summer Camp: HFMD collaborates with Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota and YMCA Camp Ihduhapi to host “Camp Not-A-Clot,” a six-day summer traditional camp experience for campers, ages 8-17, who have hemophilia and other chronic bleeding disorders. The mission of camp is to foster community among bleeding disorder patients and promote a transition to independence. Campers will enjoy all the fun of an outdoor summer camp in a medically safe environment.

Family Education Events: HFMD hosts fitness and education workshops for members, which combine information presentations along with fun activities for people of all ages.  Some favorite fitness events for families include visits to and Pinz Bowling and Laser Tag Center, Water Parks, and most recently Vertical Endeavors rock climbing gym.

Blood Brotherhood: Our Blood Brotherhood program is a collaboration with Hemophilia Federation of America to provide opportunities for men in our community diagnosed with a bleeding disorder to share their experiences and connect with each other. These events combine brief educational sessions with popular activities such as attending professional sports events and visits to local comedy clubs. HFA offers a monthly chat for Blood Brothers across the country to share their experiences on the second Monday of every month from 7 PM – 8:30 PM CT.

Women’s Education Events: Each Fall HFMD and our affiliated HTC’s host an informative and relaxing day for the women with bleeding disorders in our community.  These events are usually held in a western suburb of Minneapolis, in a beautiful facility with a lake and walking trails nearby.  The participants enjoy informative sessions, as well as sessions that center on the arts and personal care.

Emergency Financial Assistance Program: This program provides emergency financial assistance for families in need due to financial hardship. To qualify individuals must be in the care of a physician and be treated in a hemophilia healthcare treatment center (HTC). HTC Social Workers assist the HFMD by determining the level of need on behalf of the patient/family requesting financial support. Contact your HTC Social Worker for more information on this program.
