Self-infusion takes great courage; most people with hemophilia do it three times a week for the rest of their lives

Among inherited blood disorders, hemophilia is often diagnosed early in childhood. Its debilitating symptoms afflict approximately 400,000 worldwide* and takes tremendous effort to treat effectively:

  • Treatment includes frequent infusions
  • Patients as young as eight must learn to treat themselves
  • Requires scrupulous patient dose compliance
For young patients it takes real courage to stick themselves with a needle, let alone the responsibility of doing it as many as three times a week. It’s a badge of courage they wear on the inside for the rest of their lives. Terumo Pharmaceutical Solutions felt they should have one to wear on the outside – something to let the world know how brave they really are.
