HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE: Meeting with leading drug manufacturers and specialty pharmacies to learn about what’s new in the treatment and management of bleeding disorders and the range of services available to you, a pep rally to celebrate our upcoming Unite for Bleeding Disorders Walk and an exclusive film screening of Bombardier Blood in the Living Sea theater at Nauticus Museum (tickets to the museum and a pre screening reception are included) and we are thrilled that Chris Bombardier and Rob Bradford (Producer; Mountain Director/Cinematographer) will be joining us to discuss the film.
ABOUT BOMBARDIER BLOOD: Colorado-based Mountaineer Chris Bombardier has never let hemophilia stop him from climbing some of the world’s tallest mountains. In 2017, Chris partnered with hemophiliac filmmaker Patrick James Lynch and his award-winning production team at Believe Limited to film his journey through Nepal to summit the world’s tallest peak, Mount Everest. Leveraging powerful archival footage, the film also chronicles Chris’s incredible six-year journey of climbing the Seven Summits, the highest mountain on each continent, during which he receives his “wake-up call” about hemophilia in developing countries and begins his activist mission.
