The National Hemophilia Foundation defines bleeding disorders as a group of disorders that share the inability to form a proper blood clot. They are characterized by extended bleeding after injury, surgery, trauma or menstruation.

We have many programs, educational opportunities, and events to help individuals and their families connect to the South Carolina bleeding disorders community. BDASC also provides networking and support services.

Advocacy is a key component of our mission at BDASC. It is also important to those affected by bleeding disorders in assuring health care needs are being met especially when living with a rare and chronic, lifelong disorder.

The Bleeding Disorders Association of South Carolina (BDASC) welcomes you to register with our non-profit organization allowing us to keep you informed while providing programs and services to you and your family. Become a member today and join our community focused and patient driven organization.

How can we help?

BDASC, formerly Hemophilia of South Carolina, was founded in 1973 by a group of parents interested in promoting awareness, providing group support, and assisting other national hemophilia organizations. The organization for 42 years existed as all-volunteer; providing programs and education, support, and advocacy for access to care at the state’s capitol. Today, BDASC serves all 46 counties in the state, currently providing education and support services to over 1000 individual members and their families now in 39 counties. BDASC provides the most current information and education in topics related to bleeding disorders, treatment therapies, insurance, and advocacy. BDASC relies on a strong volunteer base of it’s board of directors and members. Without our volunteers, we could not serve our mission.
