Alex and Josh

Alex and Josh, now 26, were born and raised in the UK. At three years old the brothers were diagnosed with severe haemophilia A. Growing up they found it difficult to fit in with their peers, especially as they were unable to take part in popular school sports such as rugby. Despite this, they got used to learning how to better manage their haemophilia and now strive to live as ‘normal’ a life as possible.

Since childhood, the boys were recommended to join The Haemophilia Society’s, ‘Lads and Dad’s’ event and have since been the charity’s patient ambassadors. On reflection, Alex and Josh express how grateful they are for the family they’ve gained from the bleeding community.
