Blood Disorder Basics
When People Have Blood Disorders, Medical IDs Can Make All The Difference!
This interview post is brought to you by a very special friend of ours, Sharon Sebolt. Sharon's son, Leo, has Hemophilia A and will be walking this Saturday for North Carolina's Hemophilia Foundation. Sharon is an advocate for Hemophilia A and wanted to share a bit about the condition, where you can go to learn more about Hemophilia A and of course, the details on this Saturday's walk.
This post is brought to you by our very special customer, Sharon Sebolt. Sharon and her son Leo first shared their story last September. Leo was diagnosed with Hemophilia A, a bleeding disorder caused by a deficiency in or absence of clotting Factor VIII. Blood cannot clot properly to stop bleeding in persons with Hemophilia and other bleeding disorders.
Lauren's Hope supports Leo and the Hemophilia Foundation
Leo captured our hearts one afternoon in August when his mom posted his photo on the Lauren's Hope Facebook page along with information about their local Hemophilia Awareness walk. Lauren's Hope is proud to support our customer Leo in his quest to raise funds for Hemophilia Awareness, which is why we are donating 10% of the proceeds of Item #V14 for the entire month of September 2010 to Leo's team, The Woodge! Leo will walk on October 16, 2010 in North Carolina.
Leo was born in Guatemala on April 5, 2001. He was adopted when he was 3 1/2 years old in September of 2004. In 2005, Leo was diagnosed with Hemophilia. Leo is now 9 years old and in 3rd grade. He makes very good grades, loves math and science, but not writing so much! Leo is a master leo-builder and spends much of his time building with legos, doing puzzles, playing on the Wii or computer, and he loves chapter books (mysteries and adventures). Leo brightens up any room. He's one of the more compassionate, bright, inquisitave little guys you'll ever meet, and he's got the best sense of humor.
