A blog all about raising awareness for Women with Bleeding disorders.
I am a severe factor 5 Hemophiliac living in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and this is a blog about my life!
You did more for those medical students than hours in the classroom, reading medical books, or even internships and rotations could ever do. You put a human face on Hemophilia, something unfortunately that isn't done all that often. I've always enjoyed talking to the students, and giving them pieces of knowledge they may not have encountered before, as unnerving as it can be at times. If you got one of them to consider Hematology as a specialty, you did a great service.
Hi Ryanne! I'm one of the students you spoke to the other day. Thank you so much for coming in to speak to us! We really appreciated your willingness to share your experiences with us, and I know we all took a lot away from the session. Your candour was really amazing - you are a really great advocate for others with hemophilia, and I think your work with young people is so important. Like Jonathan said, putting a human face to various conditions is so valuable for us as future doctors.You are a fantastic speaker, by the way!
This made me cry, I miss you and love you so much Ryanne. Keep up your positive momentum!
Hello,I really admire how brave and knowledgeable you are, I was never born with Hemophilia have no family history but I acquired Hemophilia A( very low FViii ) after I gave a birth to my 2nd child in 2013, it is an autoimmune disease, I received treatment but my Fviii is still low and I am considered Hemophiliac...Tough disease but we have to be courage to face the challenges and lead a normal life....I live in Calgary too.
