Hosted by: Josie Olsen
Guest: Linda Wright
In this episode of the HemoStories Podcast, Josie interviews Linda Wright, a Factor 1 deficient member of the bleeding disorders community. Linda has afibrinogenemia, which means her liver manufactures no fibrinogen. Josie first became acquainted with Linda when searching online for others with afibrinogenemia like her son, Forrest.
This is the first in a series of interviews covering the whole spectrum of bleeding disorders. Linda’s long history and extensive involvement in the bleeding disorders community will be as interesting to listen to as her 67 year personal experience with afibrinogenemia.
