Red hearts from Koen Theys, 1999

My MOM  HAS EMPHYSEMA SINCE 2004…SHE DEPENDS ON OXYGEN AND ON HER EMOTIONS TO COPE WITH HER CHRONIC HEALTH SITUATION. I ADMIRE HER BECAUSE SHE DOES HER  FISIOTHERAPY, HER BREATHING EXCERCICES, SHE TAKES HER MEDECINE…SHE WANTS TO BE AS AUTONOMOUS AS SHE CAN. HEMOPHILIA AS A CHRONIC  BLOOD CLOTTING DISORDER THAT REQUIRES TOO DISCIPLINE AND JOY OF LIVING TO COPE BETTER! I HAVE LEARNT  this WITH ALL MY FRIENDS OF HEMOPHILIA AND WITH WHOM HAVE THE DISORDER.
