    Oi Frederica!
    Gostei do Blog!
    Só passei hoje mesmo para conhecer e ví que tem bastante informações legais. Uma dica (acho que ficaria até corrido para você), se você tiver acesso a informações sobre alguns tratamentos que possam aumentar a qualidade de vida dos Hemofílicos seria muito bom. Caso isto tome muito do seu tempo não tem problema.
    Ex.: no meu caso que tenho o problema crônico do joelho.

    Beijos
