Meet Kim and Bekah
Mother-daughter team with von Willebrand disease (VWD)
Kim and her family learned about VWD together when she was diagnosed at age 35. She taught her kids to treat VWD as part of their life, not their whole life. Bekah's VWD was diagnosed when she was 14. Thanks to HUMATE-P, when Bekah had her baby, her experience with VWD and childbirth was different from her mother's. Now, Bekah hopes her kids will feel as comfortable living with VWD as she does.
Living life to the fullest
Outdoor and music enthusiast Roberta Smith can trace her family history with VWD back to her paternal great-grandfather. Despite a lifetime of challenges living with the genetic disease, Roberta lives life to the fullest with her husband and family.
