A permanent stone remembrance in
Golden Gate Park San Francisco
Jeffrey Moualim, Jeanne White-Ginder, Val Bias and Phillip Kucab
The Hemophilia Foundation of Northern California is proud to have the first permanent Hemophilia Memorial located in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, within the Moonlight Crescent at the National AIDS Memorial Grove.
Currently under development, the Hemophilia Memorial will have engraved names of the thousands of men, women, and children who lost or horribly altered their lives due to AIDS/HIV through contaminated blood products.
The loving memorial is spearheaded by Jeanne White-Ginder, mother of Ryan White (shown left.) Ryan is remembered as a brave and captivating teenager who became the hemophilia community's first principal activist. Ryan gained national recognition through media, celebrity and public affection forever changing the stigma of AIDS/HIV in America.
The memorial also speaks to the subsequent unity of the bleeding disorder community and is supported by our largest advocacy foundations including the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF); Hemophilia Federation of America (HFA); the Committee of Ten Thousand (COTT) and the National AIDS Memorial Grove.
This memorial will finally give the hemophilia community a place where grief can find a home; where family members can come to remember their loved ones; and as importantly, where visitors from across the US and around the world can learn about the devastation endured by the hemophilia community.
The hemophilia memorial will be dedicated on September 16, 2017. HFNC encourages family members to connect with the project here. Additionally, on behalf of the Hemophilia Memorial we ask for donations to help fund the “engraving of the names” ($150 per person) by making a financial contribution here.
