The Hemophilia Foundation of Maryland (HFM) is a Nonprofit Organization, which devotes its efforts to improving the quality of life for persons affected with bleeding disorders and their complications. This mission is accomplished through outreach development, educational programs, informational literature, support services and patient referrals. HFM is a proud member of the Hemophilia Federation of America.


Our History

The Hemophilia Foundation of Maryland evolved in the early 1950’s from a group of concerned moms whose sons were affected with Hemophilia. They were soon joined by men from the community who were also affected. These early chapter families were brought together by the social worker at St. Agnes Hospital, where most were treated. As the HIV crisis unfolded, the chapter formed. Some of the founding members of this organization continue to guide HFM today.
