Bleeding Disorders Awareness Week 2019

Posted: Tuesday, 27 August 2019

Bleeding Disorders Awareness Week is from 13 to 19 October this year. During the week many people are holding Red Cake Day's as a way of promoting Bleeding Disorder awareness. Please support as Red Cake Day or consider running one yourself because Red cakes can change lives! They can.

Bleeding Disorders Awareness Week is an opportunity for individuals and families as well as Haemophilia Foundations and other organisations to take part in a campaign and activities to raise awareness about haemophilia, von Willebrand disease and related inherited bleeding disorders throughout Australia during the week of 13-19 October 2019.   

This year the theme is Challenging the Status Quo.
What does challenging the status quo mean to you? Look out for the personal stories from the bleeding disorders community that we will publish during Awareness Week. We invite you to share these stories with other people you know: it’s through sharing personal experiences that we can connect and increase understanding in the wider community. 

Our key event is World Cafe on 19 October. We can tell you what is happening with new treatments for bleeding disorders, but we are interested in listening to your ideas, experiences, perspectives and visions on activities or supports that will help people in the inherited bleeding disorders community.  The richest conversations can happen in a World Café - moving between tables, in relaxed places, with new and old acquaintances.

For more information on other Queensland events contact Graham on 0419 706 056. For resources and information nationally contact HFA on 1800 807 173.
