Newly Diagnosed Families Retreat

October 14 @ 6:00 pm - October 16 @ 11:00 am

We are excited to host our annual Newly Diagnosed Families Retreat from Friday, October 14 to Sunday, October 16 at the Grand Summit Hotel and Conference Center at Attitash in Bartlett, NH.

This event was created to bring families together in a relaxed, kid-friendly, setting to ease the anxiety surrounding a bleeding disorder diagnosis through education and targeted activities. It also aims to offer peer support from other families in similar situations. The retreat is intended for families with kids ages 10 and under who have been diagnosed with a bleeding disorder.
