Spreading awareness

Hi everyone!

Just to let you all know that its World Haemophilia Day on April 17th - a day designed to spread awareness of haemophilia and related bleeding conditions.
In the UK (sorry, I dont have the stats for any other country!) it takes, on average, 15 years for a woman to be diagnosed with VWD. Thats 15 years unnecessarily suffering simply because her doctors arent aware of the condition.
Wear red on the 17th and spread the word, knowledge is power!
