My Story

Hello

My name is Daksh. I am 10 years old. I live in India and I have severe hemophilia A. I am in the 4th grade at school. I have missed about 30 days of school this past six months due to bleeds. These absences have made it hard to do well at school but, still, I am making very good progress. My favorite subjects are Hindi and English. When I am not at school I study, and sometimes watch television.When I grow up I would like to become a doctor.

I celebrated my birthday this year at home with my friends and we had a delicious cake.

In the past six months I have had to travel to the hospital for bleeds in my GI and knee. The hospital is 25 kilometers from my home and we travel there by bike.

 

 

I live with my parents and my older sister. My father works in service. Our family’s monthly income is about $214.

We live in a city. Our house has two rooms and is made of concrete. It has a kitchen with a gas stove for cooking and a refrigerator. We get our water from a courtyard outside our house. But we do have a toilet in our home. Our house is in good condition and well organized. It is neat and clean.
