  • What is Hemophilia?

    Hemophilia is a very rare disorder, where a lack proteins called ‘clotting factors’, prevents excessive bleeding in those afflicted. Even minor cuts and bruises have the potential for heavy blood loss. This genetic disorder is passed down through a family's genes and occurs almost exclusively in men.

    What is Hemophilia? What is Hemophilia?

    The most disconcerting problem for people with hemophilia is internal bleeding, especially bleeding into joints like the knees, elbows, and ankles. When bleeding happens inside the joint, it becomes very swollen and painful. Repeated bleeding into a joint can lead to severe arthritis. Internal bleeding in vital areas such as the brain, throat, and abdomen can be life-threatening.

    A person with mild hemophilia may only experience problems with bleeding during surgery, major dental work, or injury. A person with moderate hemophilia will have those problems plus bleeding problems with more minor injuries such as a hard bump to the knee.

    In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, products ranging from running shoes to fruit snacks are all turning pink, and with good reason.  BreastCancer.org states that every 1 in 8 women are at risk for developing invasive breast cancer during her lifetime, which is up from every 1 in 22 women developing the disease in the 1940’s.  But does buying a product with the pink ribbon really help save lives?  The answer is, some do much more than others.  Companies are allowed to print the pink ribbon on their products without even having to donate to find a cure.  Businesses are very much aware of the fact that “the pink ribbon is arguably the most successful marketing symbol of our time,” says Karuna Jaggar, the executive director of Breast Cancer Action.

    How do you avoid the scams? Research is key. Before picking up a product with a pink ribbon, make sure that your money is actually being used to benefit breast cancer research and not to simply support a marketing tactic which leaves the company with a greater profit than the foundation.  For more information on this topic visit  www.thinkbeforeyoupink.org.
