Raleigh, NC, June 19, 2009 --( Nancy McFarlane, president of MedPro Rx, Inc. (, a provider of specialty pharmacy services to clients with chronic illnesses, has announced that the pharmacy is a sponsor for the Virginia Hemophilia Foundation’s Camp Youngblood. The camp will take place from Sunday, July 26 to Friday, July 31 and is located at 400 Holiday Trails Lane in Charlottesville, Va.

Camp Youngblood is a weeklong summer camp for children with bleeding disorders and their siblings.

The camp also contains MedKorner, a fully equipped healthcare center. For more information about the camp and carnival event, visit

Approximately one in every 5,000 males nationwide is born with hemophilia, affecting all racial and socioeconomic groups equally. People with hemophilia experience bleeding following an injury and may have frequent spontaneous bleeding episodes, often into the joints and muscles. More traumatic injuries may result in serious problems and potential disability. The three most common types of hemophilia are Hemophilia A or Factor VIII Deficiency, Hemophilia B or Factor IX Deficiency, and von Willebrand Disease. vWD is caused by a deficiency or defect of a clotting protein, and it affects approximately 1-2 percent of the United States population. Unlike hemophilia, vWD occurs equally among males and females and is more likely to cause nosebleeds and bleeding under the skin than into the joints.

“We are excited to sponsor Camp Youngblood this year,” McFarlane said. “Camp Youngblood is a great opportunity for children living with bleeding disorders to have a fun and safe summer camp experience with others facing the same challenges.”
