João Vitor is 6 years old and his mom Edvania gives him his dosis of factor once a week. He started prophylaxis 3 years ago and everything is fine. This doesn’t mean that Yoshi his dinossaur won’t get it like him!! LOL Little boys love to role play and imagine situation where they feel active and helping others…
