BioMatrix Millie Gonzalez Memorial Scholarship

Description

$1000 scholarship for women with hemophilia or von Willebrand Disease. Millie Gonzalez (1953-2001) was a devoted wife and mother as well as a pioneer dedicated to advocacy. Millie promoted awareness of the unique struggles faced by women with a bleeding disorder and those caring for an individual affected by a bleeding disorder. She was married to Papo Gonzalez, a person with hemophilia and well known advocate in his own right, who passed prior to Millie. She was a tireless advocate not only for women, but also for people of Hispanic heritage affected with bleeding disorders. Although loving, compassionate and gentle, Millie had the heart of a tiger and fought each day for her own survival while inspiring others to achieve and succeed.
