(April 17 is World Haemophilia Day)
By Shweta Sharma,
New Delhi : Sageer Ahmad, a tailor by profession, got to know about haemophilia when his year-old son hurt himself and started bleeding profusely. But Ahmad still didn't learn his lesson. His second son born after a gap of three years was also detected with the blood disorder.
Similar is the story of Bimlesh Sharma. Despite knowing that she is a carrier of the lifelong disorder, she did not get a detection test done when she was pregnant. The result: her son has the same genetic disorder.
