Spread the Cure™ & SpreadtheCure.org™ was founded in 2018 by a dad of two kids with hemophilia. Our goal is to figure out how to get everyone with hemophilia cured and give hope to those waiting on a real cure.
SpreadtheCure.org is a nationwide 501(c)(3) organization that aims to create awareness, and raise capital, to overcome the numerous obstacles standing between those who suffer from hemophilia and a cure. My own children have endured countless trips to the ER, extended hospitalizations, a lifetime of weekly IV treatments, regular episodes of internal bleeding, extensive external bruising, debilitating joint pain, arthritis, surgeries, and the list goes on ... and my oldest son was born in 2002. We don’t share our story often, but here is a link to public images of others suffering from hemophilia. We hope more people will share their real stories on our Facebook posts so we can fix this disease and help others in the future.
After battling the insurance companies, government programs, healthcare companies, and the seemingly endless bureaucracy standing between patients and a solution to this costly & deadly disease, we created Spread the Cure to find ways to remove the obstacles. We hope to create safe, affordable & timely access to a cure thanks to ethical & safe revelations through CRISPR technologies.
Prior to recent developments, it would cost a minimum of $270,000 annually to properly treat one person with hemophilia. The lifelong financial burdens leave most families in turmoil as they seek compassionate employers, adequate insurance and the medications necessary to live. Without adequate and timely treatment, many people with severe cases of hemophilia endure extreme physical suffering and die before reaching adulthood.
Prior to current medications, the average life expectancy was 13 years of age.
With your help, we hope to remove financial obstacles standing between patients & a cure. We view our organization as an opportunity to do our part to help fix a broken and unfair healthcare system, particularly for anyone born with blood-related diseases caused by single-gene genetic disorders.
The former and current healthcare system fails to address severe genetic diseases, driving many families into perpetual poverty as their only means to qualify for long-term, affordable treatment. There are countless untold stories about the obstacles that those with hemophilia have encountered as they seek treatment. Very few companies, nor individual states, nor the federal government are willing to take on the costs associated with providing a permanent solution. The social stigma and the financial burdens leave many families in a difficult situation.
Through donations, corporate sponsorships, and fundraising events, we will be strong advocates on behalf of individuals & families affected by blood-related diseases caused by genetic disorders. We will work tirelessly to overcome obstacles that stand in the way of safe, affordable & timely access to a cure.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. We hope you help 'Spread the Cure' by donating. We also ask that you 'Spread the Word' about our mission on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, so that one day our vision can reach around the world.
