As many of you know Taylor who is currently a Winona Middle School Student.
Taylor was born with Von williebrands.
Von Willebrand disease (VWD) is a blood disorder in which the blood does not clot properly. Blood contains many proteins that help the blood clot when needed. This can lead to small, heavy, hard-to-stop bleeding. Although rare, the bleeding can be serious enough to damage joints or internal organs, or even be life-threatening.
Von Williebrands, is rare and, it may develop later in life. Which there are three types of Vonwilliebrands 1,2 &3. Treatments for VWD patients is either Antifibrinolytic Drugs,Desmopressin Acetate Injections and Factor Replacement Therapy.
Taylor over the years have made & met many family, friends, wonderful doctors, nurses,and staff thru the Mayo Hemophilia Treatment Center in Rochester MN, and Hemophilia Foundation Minnesota & Dakotas.
The fact HFMD & HTC have given many learning opportunities and connections to many bleeding disorder children, adults & families. Taylor is extremely brave, courageous, humble & kind.
