THE STORY:

As you know my son has the lifelong chronic illness of severe Hemophilia A. His blood does not clot, without injecting fake factor into his body every other day so that he can live a normal life. I am raising money for Golf Gets in Your Blood! Tournament and Auction, which raises funds for hemophilia research at Puget Sound Blood Center and for programs for children suffering from bleeding disorders; that the Bleeding Disorder Foundation of Washington (BDFW) puts on.

The annual tournament is July 12th at the Golf Club of Newcastle and this year is the last one.

To live a normal life Cole has to infuse himself with the factor that his body lacks every other day. Every other day my child sticks himself with a needle. I know most of you have heard of our finger bleeds, or leg bleeds and how Cole just every once in a while will go through a period of hating hemophilia. I know that in terms of chronic illness this one isn't too bad to have; with medicine he will live a long fairly normal life. I have to admit and Cole would second it in a heartbeat - it is still pretty crappy to have.

It is this reason that I pour my heart into doing what I can to make his life the best it can be. I am lucky to have found an organization that brings individuals and families together with the Bleeding Disorder Foundation Wa. Cole loves meeting others who are dealing with the same thing he does. His favorite is Camp I-VY a summer camp for kids with bleeding disorders. With only 400 individuals in Washington State with a bleeding disorder, who knows if he would have met some else if it wasn't for these organizations.

Your donation in support of this fund! Not only supports two great organizations.. It is bettering the life of my son. Thank you for bringing hope to children with bleeding disorders and for funding hemophilia research that might someday lead to a cure.
