Mark, Hemophilia B Trial participant

I have haemophilia B which is a blood clotting disorder. Both my brother and I weren’t allowed to play any sort of impact sport as children and my brother actually passed away with issues from haemophilia.

When I was at The Alfred Hospital in Melbourne speaking to my doctors, they mentioned there was a clinical trial about to start at Royal Prince Alfred in Sydney. I thought it may not help me but it may help others.

The trial is now finished and has been a success. I can now go bush walking and camping without being concerned about slipping or hurting myself, being out of action, or not being able to play with my kids.

I’m hoping it’ll change lives in my family for generations to come.
