IN THEIR OWN WORDS: THOUGHTS FROM PAST CONFERENCES

“I didn’t realize how alone I felt in my diagnosis for the past 34 years until I found this amazing Foundation and met other patients like me. I am so grateful for the work you do, and for that of your volunteers, faculty, staff and industry supporters. Thank you. This event has changed my life.”
Chrissy Morgenthaler
“The breakout session on Prophylaxis by Dr. Walsh was awesome! His thoughts as well as those from the others who shared in the group made me realize I may not notice what I am missing until I give it a try.”
Stacy Bond
“The conference changed my life. It was the first time in my life that I wasn’t different. I felt normal. The connection was instantaneous.”
Hannah Lutz
“Your hard work has made our lives so much better in so many ways. There is not a single day that passes that I am not thinking about something from the conference, following up on an idea I learned from the conference, watching our daughter chat with a friend from the conference or working to find my voice to help move this organization and education about VWD further along.”
The Wallis Family
“Having participated in the VWD Foundation meetings it is clear that the diagnosis and treatment of this disorder is suboptimal….these patients are eager to learn more about their disorder, improve the diagnosis and treatment of their severe bleeding episodes and support families in which there is a newly diagnosed patient.”
Robert Montgomery, MD. Senior Investigator and Professor
of Pediatric Hematology and Population Health and
Epidemiology, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI
