Y as YOUNG : “Not far advanced in life, growth,

development… of recent birth or origin ; still near

its beginning…”

To live with hemophilia in an easier way, we have to use PREVENTION.

Our children learn with us adults, that it is important to report quickly when they get hurt, or when they feel that something is wrong. If a child with hemophilia learns in an early age how to collaborate in his treatment, he will have more chances of a happy life. Even if he has severe hemophilia and has to treat spontaneous hemorrages in a same joint , he will get to understand his condition and what options that he has to improve his condition: physiotherapy sessions, ocupational therapy, prophylaxis if available, change of routine…

BEING YOUNG or having a young mind means being OPEN to new solutions, new ways to solve the same problems.

Y como YUHUUUUUUUU: “grito de alegria para comemorar ato vitorioso, momento de conquista…”

Pessoal, não achei nenhuma palavra no dicionário com Y…:) por isso me permití colocar esta expressão de alegría que eu uso muito!!


No congresso de hemofilia um membro da Associação de Hemofilia da Bélgica que se chama Patrick, me disse que um dos momentos felizes dos meninos é quando na idade de 7-8 anos eles recebem o diploma da capacitação de AUTO-INFUSÃO!!! o próprio centro fornece com as assinaturas dos médicos e enfermeiros o diploma para o jovem…que fica todo orgulhoso! legal neh?

No nosso centro crianças de até 4-5 já conseguem fazer a auto-infusão…eu gostaría de fazer a mesma coisa e dar um diploma para eles de nosso centro. Vou propôr a idéia.
