Your Impact - A Message from Tony Castaldo

"The US HAEA was created by HAE patients and caregivers who wanted to change the quality of life for others, who like them, had spent years suffering through the pain and misunderstanding of HAE. Today, we remain just as passionate about everything we do, as we recognize and value the social impact each HAEA member can have on improving the lives of our entire patient community.

You too can help, by becoming an HAEA Hero! Whether you choose to host an HAE event, plan group fundraising, or join our volunteer efforts, you can make a lasting, positive impact on our patient community.

Funds raised by our HAE Heroes help to support three patient oriented programs:


  • HAEA Scholarship Program – provides financial support for HAE patients who are entering or attending college and seeking to improve their lives through academic achievement.

  • HAEA Compassion Fund - offers financial assistance for patients in need who must travel to see an HAE medical specialist.

  • HAE Research – supports expert researchers in their efforts to solve the remaining scientific mysteries of HAE through the US HAEA Angioedema Center at UCSD.

Make an impact today in the life of all HAE patients! Contact us today to become an HAEA Hero!"
