It passed!

Today was a crazy day. My baby boy woke up with over 100 degree fever and it was raining outside. I ran into work briefly, but came home to be with Trenton. As we sat resting in the basement, I heard my phone ring.

"I have confirmation that your bill passed, " Jay Bryant-Wimp. I was so excited. The Gateway Hemophilia Chapter and The Midwest Hemophilia Assocation have worked for years to get the Standards of Care for People With Bleeding Disorders Passed. This year I feel I gave it my all. Mary (from St. Louis) had given it her all for two years and couldn't make the drive this year due to work. (She still worked on getting the bill passed from home . . don't you worry) I felt like it was on me to get this bill through.

So many friends, family, and people from the Hemophilia Community helped get this bill passed. I had classmates from Warsaw that wrote letters to the Legislators. (These are people that I haven't spoken to in over 10 years!) Many people gave up a day or days of work to come to Jefferson City. Many people brought their families from 100's of miles away to talk to their Legislators.

I am excited that Missouri will now have something "on the books". There are going to be many changes in the coming years and it will help to have this bill.

I'll post more details about the bill soon!

Having haemophilia A this means that his body, his immune system, fights off the medicine – the infused factor VIII. The alternative clotting factors that we used to control bleeding were much less effective. His medical condition was heart broken. Despite our visit to several doctors his health wasn't getting better. He was subjected to different medications, by many doctors for treatment without the assurance of having a permanent cure. Having a son with hemophilia and then, the added challenge of an inhibitor, is not always easy. Suspicion that something wasn’t right began when he was 6 months old due to the heavy amount of bruising which started showing up all over his legs. As a parent, I would love to fix things and make everything better. Fortunately, there have been other positive alternative (Herbal Medicine) though few people doesn't know the challenges of living with hemophilia. If your child is having same problem, do not expose him/her to more danger, use a herbal remedy that is safe and effective. Contact him directly for more info with his email address:
