According to the CDC, knowledge of family history can be important in determining a child’s health risks. If a child presents symptoms, family history can help determine a diagnosis or suggest strategies for families to employ to minimize or postpone the onset of certain diseases.

Did you know that Hemophilia A and B are carried on the X chromosome? In other words, both types affect boys more than girls. However, females can be carriers of the disease. Hemophilia is often detected early in life, with severe cases usually diagnosed within a month after birth and mild cases within the infant’s first 18 months.

What is hereditary hemochromatosis (HH)? To put it simply, it's a genetic disease that alters the body's ability to regulate iron absorption. When the body absorbs too much iron, it can be deposited in the cells of the pancreas, heart, liver, joints and pituitary gland. Often passed down through a mutation of the HFE gene, HH can lead to liver cancer, diabetes, cirrhosis of the liver, and other, more severe, diseases.

Parent Corner

Reading stories from other parents and families is one of the easiest ways to value your mental health in times of stress and doubt! When parents connected with us about having a safe place to share their stories we created 'The Parent Corner', a place to read real-life stories and discover life-changing organizations, such as Ability Advocates, Parent to Parent USA, and The Corbin Story. Our growing list of unique experiences is curated to bring a sense of connection and serve as a reminder that you are not alone.

Have a story to share? We’d love to hear from you!
✉️[email protected]

Inception of the Parent Corner took place at the November meeting of the Consumer Collaborative Network, where parents expressed an interest in having a place to share their stories. We were the proud parents of one extremely active baby girl, a child that was up and moving around in her crib at day...
