$1500 scholarship for MEN with hemophilia or von Willebrand Disease and their immediate family members. Mike Hylton (1945-1998) A man of great character and steadiness, Mike faced some of the most physically daunting and mortal challenges that people with severe hemophilia could encounter. During the blood crisis of the 1980s, Mike met the challenges with class and a concern for others not only in the bleeding disorder community, but also those affected with HIV. He was a thoughtful, analytical and spiritual individual - patient and tolerant of others, but certainly willing and capable to express his opinions and beliefs. While some felt it was more important to speak, he knew that it was more effective to listen. Mike found great comfort in his faith and family.
