In its over 40 years of existence, Camp Hemotion has served as HFNC's primary way to reach young people and provide them with the tools they need to overcome the challenges presented them by their illness and lead healthy, vibrant and importantly, full lives. Specific strategies employed during the Camp session to bring about these outcomes include: Self-infusion/administration training - medical professionals help campers learn how to mix their own medicine and inject intravenously into their arm or hand or administer subcutaneously as easily, painlessly and effectively as possible. This is an important right of passage for children with bleeding disorders as most often their parents have performed this task since they were infants. Learning self infusion/administration is a critical step toward independence, as the intravenous/subcutaneous medication is required sometimes as often as daily to sustain life for people with bleeding disorders.
