My name is Tai-il Kim.
I have severe hemophilia A. And I have two sons and a youngest daughter. The daughter is 4 years old and of course a hemA carrier. I usually ask my children to help me when I self-inject to inform them about hemophilia in a friendly way.
Yesterday, I had a prophylaxis with my daughter. For the first time, she succeeded in stabbing the needle, even though I held her hand.
By the time our children grow up and give birth to their children, they’ll have completely overcome their hemophilia, and they won’t get these injections anymore, right?
Today, April 17th, World Hemophilia Day, I wish better treatment for hemophilia and better awareness of more bleeding disorders.
