"Because of FEIBA prophylactic treatment, my Timmy can live his life with so much less worry about bleeds."
"Timmy is 150% boy. He seems to have boundless energy, running around every chance he gets."

"Timmy went to hemophilia camp for the first time last year, and he was in love with it. It was amazing for him to be able to go out and play with no worries about other kids being too rough. Everyone there knows what he's going through."
"One of the most significant things I have learned from having a child with a chronic illness is that not every setback is an unmanageable tragedy."
I have learned not to "sweat the small stuff." There is just so much going on in everyday life that any other problems, like drama at work, won't even faze me anymore. Nothing is as challenging as what my loved ones and I have gone through.
