“Ask what can you do instead of thinking about what you can’t” Profile: Clive Smith

Open access


Few would disagree that haemophilia presents challenges for everyone who lives with it. Perhaps the greatest of these is being denied the opportunities available to other people through fear of bleeding and joint damage. The regular infusions and clinic appointments that characterise treatment are certainly burdensome, and sometimes traumatic for children and parents alike; but being told ‘People with haemophilia can’t do this…’ is damning in its finality. It is enough to make you demand, ‘Why not?’ - which is exactly what Clive Smith and a growing number of people in the haemophilia community are asking.
