Profile of a hemophiliac

Ack! That sounds like the title of a movie. It's not--just the contents of a feature article from USA Today: "A Legacy of Tainted Blood," by Steve Sternberg. The young man profiled provides through his life story a (partial) history of HIV in among hemophiliacs and a sense of his current struggles to live a normal life. Ironically, HIV is a greater threat to that normal life than hemophilia.

The story's sidebar carries some interesting information about the major hemophilia organizations, their past divisions, and their current--common--goal.
