Hello all, my name is Thomas McGuire. I'm a severe hemophiliac and a volunteer at Liga Antioqueña de Hemofilicos in Medellín, Colombia.
Hemophilia is a blood disorder, where you are missing a protein that allows your blood to clot. The foundation I'm working at has a primary goal of helping Hemophiliacs and their families live a normal life, as well as educating the community about hemophilia.
I'm here because I want to help the kids and adults struggling with hemophilia. When I arrived I learned that when a Hemophiliac is injured they spend hours in the hospital without treatment, simply because the doctors don't know or don't have medicine. I have adjusted the plan, as the factory has agreed to a lifetime warranty for all bracelets I will not be giving 2 to every child, instead 1 for every child and young adult, as well as medical ID cards for the adults and medical tattoos for those who want one (I will be making a deal with a local tattoo parlor. As the money increases I will be expanding the bracelets to a larger group. Right now I have enough for all kids and young adults, and will hopefully expand it to the years 2-27. Thank you everyone for your donations and I will post pictures and videos soon!
. Because I have been doing so well with this, I have doubled the goal, I have set up an account with the company who makes the bracelets so I can put the money there, and as I get more money, the Liga will order more bracelets. My goal now is to get them for all kids and young adults in the entire country! Please donate whatever you can!
