I have watched my brother grow up with hemophilia, who is now 32. In some way, I think that is what inspired me to be a nurse. Then came along my sweet nephew, and surprised us with being a hemophiliac as well. I watch as his mom and dad do all they can to keep him healthy and safe, and it makes me realize what all my mother did for my brother; along with two other children. We love our boys. My sister has really worked hard in getting us involved in helping the foundation, and she has inspired me to work hard to help!!
