Hosted by: Joslyn Olsen
Guest: Timothy Wilcox
In this HemoStories episode, Joslyn interviews Ohio native, Timothy Wilcox in a stairwell setting while attending NHF’s 67th Annual Meeting in Dallas, Texas. Together they discuss Timothy’s personal experiences of being both a diabetic and a moderate hemophiliac.
Despite being raised with many close family members affected by hemophilia (brothers, cousins, uncles), treatment was especially difficult for Timothy because he comes from a family of Jehovah’s Witnesses, who typically do not believe in blood transfusions of any kind. This episode also helps the listener gain insight on what it was like to have hemophilia in the decades preceding the HIV/Hepatitis outbreak of the 1980’s.

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.
