EVENT: Turkey Trot 5K
Join our team Pounding the Pavement for Peyton & J.R. for our annual hemophilia 5K! Monies raised helps support our chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation, the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter! Peyton is our 6 year old son who has severe hemophilia A with an inhibitor. He has been receiving factor VIII infusions through a port daily for more than 5 years! We continue this treatment to keep his inhibitor under control. Right now he doing well but it's complicated and that can change at any moment. Peyton continues to be an active 6 year old! Like Peyton, my brother J.R. had severe hemophilia A with an inhibitor. Because treatment was not as advanced in the 70's & 80's as it is today he suffered from multiple joint bleeds and was in a wheel chair most of the time. He lost his battle in 2011 but we continue to think of him daily and honor his memory. Thank you to everyone for donations and running!
