Hemophilia is a life-altering disease. Your blood’s inability to clot makes deep bleeding a huge concern, especially at joints like your ankles, knees and elbows. Someone with this condition could let hemophilia stifle their desire to push their physical limits or quell their desire for adventure.
Chris Bombardier recently became the first person with hemophilia to reach the summit of Mt. Everest and has now completed five of the Seven Summits. However, Chris is climbing for something bigger than himself.
Chris and Believe Limited are working to help bring modern hemophilia treatment to developing countries around the world. Many of the countries that Chris has climbed in don’t have the basic treatments needed to enable those with hemophilia to climb the majestic mountains in their backyard. Chris is working to change that.
Watch the trailer for Chris’s documentary “Bombardier Blood” and visit his website to learn more about how you can get involved.
