Throughout the month, we will be sharing stories of families like the Kreceks, who have been impacted by the work of VHF, made possible only by generous donations from people like you. Please give today, and know that your support is going to a worthy cause.
“Christine’s brothers were born with hemophilia A, as well as one of her nieces. Because of our family history, when we got pregnant with our oldest son, we did some genetic counseling and testing, which showed that Christine was a carrier, so we knew our child had a 50% chance of being born with hemophilia. Turned out our oldest son was not born with hemophilia, but our youngest Nick was born with severe hemophilia A.
The Hemophilia Treatment Center in Charlottesville told us about the Virginia Hemophilia Foundation annual meeting when our son was about 7 months old. We were excited to connect with other families that had similar experiences. As a result of being involved with the chapter, we and our children have friends they have known their whole lives, and we have shared support with many other community members.” ~ Jeff Krecek
