We’re excited to announce the latest members of Hemophilia of Georgia’s (HoG’s) Mighty Sticker Club. Congratulations to Bairon and Jonathan for mastering the steps of self-infusion. These steps include mixing the factor, selecting a vein, sticking oneself, infusing the factor and completing a treatment calendar.

“Bairon is so brave and I’m happy to be a part in helping him establish independence in his own care,” said Olivia.

Jonathan, a three-year veteran of Camp Wannaklot, received his Mighty Sticker award at school, along with a Game Stop gift card. He enjoys roller skating and playing video games. His favorite movie is How to Train Your Dragon, and he enjoys reading graphic novels.
