Florida Residents Lace-Up Their Walking Shoes to Raise Awareness About Bleeding Disorders


Miami, FL, March 21, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Florida residents, including friend, family and supporters of those affected by hemophilia and other serious bleeding disorders will participate in the third-annual Florida Hemophilia Association Walk in the Jungle.

The Walk in the Jungle will raise funds to find better treatments and cures for bleeding disorders, and to prevent the complications of these disorders through awareness, education, advocacy and research.

Hundreds of thousands of Americans are living with bleeding disorders. Hemophilia is an inherited bleeding disorder that prevents blood from clotting. It is characterized by uncontrolled, often spontaneous bleeding. Internal bleeding into the joints can result in pain, swelling and, if left untreated, can cause permanent damage to the affected joints as well as vital organs. More than ever before, improvements in care and therapy are allowing people with serious bleeding disorders to live better, fuller lives. But there's more work yet to be done.
