Information for Preteens With Hemophilia B
B2B Book: Navigating the Preteen Years
Being a preteen is a complicated stage of life, even without a chronic condition, but having hemophilia B can add unwanted stress. These important developmental years are full of changes that can affect sense of self, family, and friendships, which is why support and understanding are so important as preteens navigate their way through a maze of questions and uncertainty.
Preteens with hemophilia B aren't the only ones who face difficulties. Parents also need to adjust as children start to become independent and take accountability for their lives and their hemophilia B treatment. The good news is that neither parents nor preteens living with hemophilia B are alone. Guidance and support are available from medical professionals, families, and patients with firsthand experience.
