THE  NET CANNOT FORM QUICKLY  OR  IN  AN EFFICIENT WAY…BECAUSE ONE OF THE CLOTTING FACTORS (8 OR NUMBER 9 DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF HEMOPHILIA,) IS MISSING  OR  NOT  FUNCTIONNING CORRECTLY. That’s why the clot delays to form and the bleeding is longer , slow to happen, like a turtle.tartaruga-lenta3

    Dear Frederica,

    What a great job you are offering to to the health care givers in the haemophilia community.
    I met you and your Flash Cards at the WFH congres in Bangkok and was immediately interested.
    In my work as a medical social worker in the Netherlands I could use your game and tool very well. It’s helpful for my young patients.
    Good you please send me a set of your Flash Cards?

    best regards,

    Ruud Bos
