Fabio is 27 years old and was diagnosed with severe haemophilia B when he was two. As a result of continuous and prolonged internal bleeds and damage, he has developed osteoarthritis in his ankles, which can be limiting in his daily life.
Nevertheless, Fabio does not allow haemophilia to hinder his passions. He actively participates in sports, cycling around his hometown of Zaragoza, Spain, travelling and exploring nature. Hopes for new treatment options keep Fabio optimistic for the future, with the prospect of a freer life, away from regular hospital visits.
Ultimately, it is important for Fabio that people living with haemophilia are seen as ‘normal’ people and, by accepting his disease, he has been able to take better care of himself and help others.
