I am 44 years old and have severe Hemophilia A. I have passionately worked in the hemophilia community for 20 years. Currently I am involved part time as a speaker. My main speaking topics are insurance issues and motivating our youth inside the bleeding disorders community about getting a higher education and making solid career selections.
Even though being born with Hemophilia brings an incredible amount of hard challenges in life, I also feel that this disease is my life’s greatest gift – I cannot change the fact that I have hemophilia, but I can change how I choose to passionately live my life with Hemophilia.
David and I are excited about this website because we want to share with you the fact that hemophilia can be the motivation and challenge in life that propels you into incredible successes and happiness. Things that perhaps you would have never experienced without having the disorder.
I am a fitness nut and enjoy working out in the gym during the week. On weekends I love “letting it rip” on my mountain bike out on the trails. We are very excited about a fitness section Sweet Affliction will have. We will be giving tips on things you can do for physical fitness when you are living with Hemophilia.
Today, I am married to my wonderful wife Patti and we currently reside in Dallas, Texas. We have a healthy little boy named Keeton who keeps us both very busy!
