Help Me Raise Money for Hemophilia at Rady Children's
When I was 8-years-old, I had a tonsillectomy at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego. What we thought would be a routine procedure, would forever change my life. Following my procedure, I had profuse bleeding and needed emergency surgery, where surgeons cauterized the bleeding site.
My doctors kept me overnight in the Hospital's Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders until they were sure the bleeding was under control, and they ran a battery of tests to identify its cause. Three weeks later, test results confirmed that I had hemophilia B, a rare form of hemophilia diagnosed in only 3,300 people in the United States.
Since that time, my family and I began raising money for the Hospital and signed a pledge to raise $1,000,000. We are getting close to our goal but I need your help. Please join my Walk Team--Henry's Hemophiliacs so I can continue to help children get the treatment they need.
