Drive-In Fusion Fundraiser a Huge Success

Incredible Parents Infusing Huge Support for Their Sons and GLHF

Jessica and Stacie are the biggest advocates for their sons because they say that “being strong is their only option.” For the fourth year, two sisters, Jessica and Stacie, have teamed up to raise awareness for bleeding disorders in the Madison, Wisconsin area by hosting an amazing event — Drive-In Fusion. Balloon, face paint and caricature artists donate their time to entertain kids prior to the main event, which is a children’s movie chosen by the boys.

While it’s not exactly a drive-in movie, they make their point with this clever name. Proceeds from sponsorships, silent auctions, raffles, food sales and other individual cash contributions from their highly successful event have now exceeded $40,000!. All have been donated to benefit the resources and support provided by GLHF. Jessica and Stacie are hopeful that in the not too distant future their sons, Dean (6) and Owen (2), who both have Hemophilia A, will benefit from advancements in research and treatment options.

Recently, Jessica and Stacie each shared moving accounts of administering their sons’ infusion treatments, with the community members support their event. If you read their stories, you’ll learn that while it’s a family affair, “It’s not a walk in the park.” Their parents and grandparents are continually amazed at the courage and strength of these little men as they receive their factor injections. GLHF is amazed and grateful for the courage in sharing their stores and for the generosity received from their caring circle of support on this journey.
