    I can’t trace it in my family. I am generally am considered to be a spontaneous. I had a great uncle die of a “blood disease,” at the age of 4. He probably had VWD, which I do, and my Mom and sisters, too. I think it is good to not be able to trace hemophilia, but I also think it would be amazing!

    You wrote that you think it is good to not be able to trace hemophilia and I would love to hear more from you about that. What do you think are the benefits of not being able to trace it?

    If I had family history, I would have losses like most of the people with family history. I am glad I don’t. But, I wish I had at least someone else in the family (a woman) who could have told me I had hemophilia way before I was 28.
