Newly Diagnosed/Young Families Support Group
So… What Does YES Stand For
Hemophilia of South Carolina’s YES Program exists to provide a “Can Do” program and support group for families and their children ages 0-12 years who are affected by bleeding disorders. Often, parents may be told what their children can’t and will not be able to do. Our message is YES they can and will; with proper support and empowerment, education and advocacy, treatment and access to care, families with young children with bleeding disorders can achieve positive outcomes and lives, lived to the fullest. Often too, parents naturally tell their children with bleeding disorders “no” for their health and safety. Our goal is to help families learn to manage their children’s bleeding disorders so it doesn’t define them. A peer support will begin to develop as parents share their wisdom and knowledge with other parents and provide strength and hope as they share experiences. The program will provide speakers and have an educational component but will remain fun and informative in a relaxing and inviting venue.
