Building confidence to manage their chronic condition at home with help from CKHC.
Born: 2007 and 2009
Diagnosis: Hemophilia A

Challenge: Managing hemophilia for two active boys.
Solution Christian has been on service for three years, followed shortly by Jeremiah. He receives Factor VIII transfusions that replace the missing protein in his blood to assist with clotting and make daily activities safer.
Results Today, Christian receives Factor VIII transfusions 3-4 times each week from his mom and is beginning to learn how to do them on his own. With the help of his nurse, Christian is teaching his little brother Jeremiah how to manage his hemophilia too. With their condition under control, they can just be regular kids.
