WE DID THAT PLAY TOGETHER! 7 kids aged 6-12 did a play long time ago at the Hemophilia Center…we had made a huge “vein” with cloth and iron circles, with a kid behind it to throw out the red, white and yellowish balloons representing blood drops coming out the vein when a bleed occurs.

THEN  THE CLOTTING PROCESS STARTED AND THE KIDS WERE  “INCORPORATING” EACH STEP: WE HAD ALSO A vW factor boy  who was the MAGNET TO MAKE THE PLATELET BOYS  GO  TO THE HOLE IN THE VEIN! Vinicius  here is a PLATELET! and is now a young man studying ,skilled in computer systems..has a full enjoyable life. I am happy for him!

sete crianças com hemofilia A e B, entre 6 e 12 anos, participaram anos atras de uma peça de teatro que criei junto com eles.

O roteiro era  a história de VITOR que tropeça e se dá conta que machucou o tornozelo. Ele percebe  que tem um sangramento interno  que está começando! Então o público é convidado para IMAGINAR o que será que está acontecendo dentro do corpo do Vitor: o PROCESSO DA COAGULAÇÃO! esta imagem é uma das etapas da coagulação, Vinicius representa as PLAQUETAS  que tampam num primeiro momento o furo por onde sai o sangue no tornozelo…..depois vem o Fator e a rede de fibrina e…assim…COAGULOU direito! Para mostrar isto fizemos uma VEIA GIGANTE DE ARAME E TECIDO E DELA SAIAM BEXIGAS COLORIDAS REPRESENTANDO O SANGRAR…FOI DEMAIS!

PS: tenho o cd da peça vou ver se dá para colocar no YOUTUBE!
