March 1 marks the start of Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month, a time dedicated to raising awareness and support for those affected by bleeding disorders. This month-long observance was first established in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan, who recognized the need to educate the public about these conditions and the challenges faced by individuals living with them. From hemophilia to von Willebrand disease, there are various types of bleeding disorders that affect millions of people worldwide. Let's use this month as an opportunity to learn more about these disorders and show our support for those impacted by them.
