With the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, many people were forced to change their lifestyle as a response, including myself. As a law-abiding citizen, I follow the quarantine rules imposed by our local government and adjust accordingly. However, while I may be relatively safe from contracting the virus, I am still susceptible to spontaneous bleeding due to my severe hemophilia.
On the 8th of April, I felt severe pain in the areas around my right hip and groin. The pain’s severity greatly inhibited my functional capacity, which prompted me to have myself admitted to the hospital.

During admission, I was treated with Factor 8 concentrate products that our organization received as a donation. The pain slowly subsided with each infusion and I slowly regained the functional capacity that I’d lost. I was discharged from the hospital after a few days.

With this, on behalf of the Hemophilia Association of Davao, I would like to thank the World Federation of Hemophilia and Dr. Jeannie Ong for their continuous support to our organization. Patients like me who suffer from hemophilia will not be able to enjoy the quality of life we currently have if not for the available treatment made possible by your support.
May God bless us and may we all remain safe from the pandemic!
