Medical Identification Tags
HFM offers a one-time medical identification tag for community members with a bleeding disorder. We understand the importance of wearing a medical ID bracelet or necklace. It provides much needed information for medical responders should you be unable to speak for yourself as a result of a medical crisis or accident. Please contact Ashley Fritsch, Office Manager, at 734-544-0015 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the ordering process. NOTE: Expect an 8 week delivery time
Facing a new diagnosis can be overwhelming. We provide educational opportunities, community events, and resources for people with bleeding disorders and their family. We always suggest that you speak with your health care provider regarding any specific questions regarding your diagnosis and treatment plan. We invite you to explore our website to find out more about programs and events that we have coming up and other resources that might support you. Know that we are always a resource for you. Please call and speak to Ashley Fritsch, Office Manager, at 734-544-0015 or email@example.com to get connected with the Foundation and to receive a welcome packet full of important information.
