This workshop is free of charge and provides an opportunity for couples who are affected by a bleeding disorder to focus on healthy and meaningful relationships. This is the key to successful living and provides us with the purpose of our lives. However, the pressures and demands of the logistics for living (especially living with a bleeding disorder), can pull us into unbalanced lifestyles and immoderate behaviors.
Retreat is open to the first 15 couples who RSVP.
Both adults are required to attend.
