Men’s Program

This support program is intended for men over the age of 18yrs living with bleeding disorders within their lives:  fathers, brothers, and sons, as well as the fathers, brothers, and sons of women and girls affected by bleeding disorders.

The mission of the men’s program is to provide support, empowerment, networking opportunities, and a space to share the knowledge and experiences living with or being a male relative of someone with a bleeding disorder.

  • The program helps to provide mentoring and education to young adults and new fathers so they will feel empowered to tackle challenges that they will face as they grow into adulthood or raise a child with a bleeding disorder.
  • The program also supports older adult men with bleeding disorders and provides them an opportunity to share their wisdom, knowledge, and experiences with young members of the community and allows them to connect with other men with bleeding disorders.
  • The program helps educate all individuals in advocacy issues that participants may need to be informed of, learn about and/or consider while living with a bleeding disorder. The goal is to provide the opportunity to build a strong team of men and boys of all ages, becoming an empowered advocacy voice, for themselves, the community, and the Chapter.
  • The program will provide a gateway to networking with others of similar situations, ages, and bleeding disorders. The goal will be to provide opportunities to build long lasting relationships within the South Carolina community and beyond.
  • The program will strive to organize and host meetings (in-person and virtual), outings, events, and meals in a relaxed setting to allow conversation to flow freely.
  • And most importantly this program will help address and work towards improving not only its members health outcomes but their quality of life as well. From finding solutions to routine but complicated tasks to addressing larger problems with a permanent fix.

We encourage all men in the South Carolina bleeding disorders community to become involved and see how you can benefit from connectivity.

JOIN BDASC’s MEN’S Program now being provided by Virtual Meetings and with live in person events.

Virtual Meetings are scheduled for the 2nd Thursday of each month!

Join the men’s community members of South Carolina, and beyond our borders, for our virtual Men’s Program conversation hour.  Our 2022 programming will be topic specific with a Q and A and wrap session timing build in. What will we talk about – you drive the program. Partnering with HFA’s Blood Brotherhood program and many other speakers within, and outside the bleeding disorders community, we will work to provide you with relevant conversations, leaving you with something you can take away for attending. Discussions can be on intimacy, mental wellness, fatherhood, dealing with joint pain, finances, aging with bleeding disorders, and more.
This is a private support group meeting of BDASC and no industry members or duel-role members are allowed to attend per BDASC policies, unless within a sponsorship and approved by the Executive Director. Any questions should be directed to Sue Martin at 864-350-9941. We hope you will join us!

We will start the new year off with a friendship building activity for networking support. Do you like to work with your hands, create and build, beat with a hammer or mallet, sand, stain and paint? Whether you do or not, time working with your creative mind and hands while connecting to others who are experiencing some of the same things you are while raising children with bleeding disorders or living yourself with a bleeding disorder, is important. We believe that providing this time for networking support and sharing experiences is valuable, and we welcome you to join us. You don’t need to bring anything but yourself. Travel grants are available for those driving more then 60 miles to attend.

All supplies, food and drink are provided and a cool DIY workshop project is yours to create and take home. Enjoy a conversation with our Common Factors Speaker as we begin to share experiences that can help with living with bleeding disorders within your family, or personally yourself! Limited space is available so don’t wait to register.

Deadline to register is January 14th. Register at the top of this page with the link provided.

This event is sponsored in part by CSL Behring in partnership with BDASC.
