National Hemophilia Foundation 
Joins CHC-NE

Community Health Charities of Nebraska (CHC-NE) is pleased to announce that the National Hemophilia Foundation, Nebraska Chapter is the newest member charity to join the organization, bringing to 18 the number of Nebraska-based health charities in the statewide fundraising federation.

“Our association with this exemplary agency will be a great partnership in health,” said Clarence Nichols, State Board Chairman. “The CHC-NE Board of Directors is very pleased to extend membership in our organization of premier health charities, offering the combined power of efficient fundraising and educational programs.”

The National Hemophilia Foundation (founded in 1948) represents the 20,000 people in the United States with a genetic bleeding disorder. There is currently no cure for hemophilia. While there are effective treatments available in the U.S., it may require lifelong infusion of “high-cost” drug products. The National Hemophilia Foundation, Nebraska Chapter – which opened its doors in 1985 – is dedicated to finding better treatments and cures for inheritable bleeding disorders and to preventing the complications of these disorders through education, advocacy and research.

“We are so honored to become members of Community Health Charities of Nebraska. CHC-NE is a leader and innovator in raising awareness and critical funds for those living in Nebraska with a chronic illness. We are proud to be a part of it and look forward to raising much needed awareness for families living with bleeding disorders in Nebraska,” said Kristi Harvey-Simi, Executive Director of the National Hemophilia Foundation, Nebraska Chapter.

CHC-NE is Part of EveryMove

CHC-NE is excited to announce that we are participating in Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska's EveryMove charity program. EveryMove promotes and rewards healthy lifestyles. When members of Blue Cross Blue Shield sign up for EveryMove, they automatically start earning rewards points for working out. Walking, running and biking are among the hundreds of activities that will earn points towards a donation charity reward. One of those rewards will be a donation to Community Health Charities of Nebraska.

Staff Sergeant Mark Thompson convinced the Army that having type-1 diabetes should not keep him from serving in Iraq. Thompson, 28, is an Iowa native. He has been married for nine years and has a son, Kyle, who is two years old. He has always had something of a travel bug, and it was this desire to see the world that inspired Thompson to join the Army. That, and the stories he heard from his college roommate -- an older student who had served in the Vietnam War. As Thompson listened, the Army started to sound like an adventure.
