Hemophilia Home is a nonprofit established to improve the quality of life for patients with hemophilia by collecting knowledge on hemophilia and helping destitute patients.
My name is Xiaodi and I am 14-years-old now; my family and I live in Chenzhai Ziran Village, Taihe county, Anhui province.
I have two older sisters, and they take very good care of me. Though our family was not rich, we were very happy. However, since I was diagnosed with hemophilia, our condition collapsed into misery. My parents used every penny to find cures for my disease, and my two sisters dropped out of school to earn money for my treatment. At the thought of their willingness to help me, I burst into tears.
My parents are temporary workers at a nearby brickyard. Every night they come back exhausted with dust coating their faces. How difficult their work must be! I always feel sad when I see their tired faces.
In order to treat my hemophilia, our family gave our every penny and borrowed money from friends and relatives as they could. But now we really have no idea where to get more money for my treatment. Please help me! Please help our family!
