This past week the guys and I were fortunate enough to be involved in a Wilderness Camp put on by the Midwest Hemophilia Association. There we helped kids from all ages learn how to shoot bows, both compound and recurves. It was great to see how excited the kids were about the archery event and I hope we have instilled a desire to further pursue the sport of archery!
Midwest Hemophilia Association:
The Midwest Hemophilia Association is a non-profit organization formed to promote awareness, provide group support, educate, and facilitate communication for the bleeding disorders community of Kansas and Missouri. We provide information on available treatments, insurance and reimbursement issues, and related legislative efforts. We also sponsor educational seminars and conferences, publish a quarterly newsletter, and hold special social events for the benefit of our members. In an effort to ease the adjustment to living with a chronic bleeding disorder, MHA’s First Steps program provides an avenue of support and education for families of newly diagnosed hemophiliacs. In addition, the MHA hosts a one-week camp every August in Lawson, Missouri specifically for kids with bleeding disorders.
