If you ask me, it’s dealing with emergency rooms. The thought of having to go to an ER and explaining about VWD makes my skin crawl! What about you? If you had to pick from the following, which is the hardest to deal with having Type 3 VWD?
People with Type 3 VWD are an extremely small group, it is estimated that there are only 300-400 in the United States. So how can your voice be heard? How can your needs be known? VCF is here to help.
The community has noticed you! The conference in May 2017 has spurred great conversation about the challenges of Type 3 VWD and people are beginning to act. Research is being planned, organizations are reaching out to see how they can help and connections are growing.
Stay tuned for more to come!
