Hosted by: Joslyn Olsen
Guest: Michael Bishop
In this HemoStories episode, Josie interviews Michael Bishop, an optimistic 22 year old from Findlay, Ohio with a fascinating story. Although he lives with Hemophilia B, an inhibitor, and an allergy, Michael has found plenty of ways to stay positive throughout the years. He’s a student, a writer, and a musician, who often found creativity as a crucial outlet while he was recovering from bleeds. Of course he says video games helped too.
Michael takes us back to when he first realized he had hemophilia, explains to our listeners what an inhibitor is, shares key hemo-related experiences from his childhood, and talks to us about the importance of connecting through social media within the hemophilia community.

Special thanks to Mason Morris from SLC, UT for writing the theme song, “Just Smile,” which was written as an optimistic reminder that there is hope for a cure and a bright future in the hemophilia world.
