World Federation of Hemophilia Congress 2018

I so sad to announce, I will not now be able to attend the World Federation of Hemophilia Congress in Glasgow.

On Wednesday, 16th May, I was rushed to hospital and admitted with suspected pneumonia. Following treatment for what was thankfully a severe chest infection, I have been allowed home under strict instructions to rest.

I will therefore be adding what information I can from home. 

Sending all my love and best wishes to everyone attending this years congress
