World Hemophilia Day
Posted: April 17, 2020
In recognition of World Hemophilia Day (April 17th), Diapharma would like to shine a spotlight on all of the innovation taking place surrounding bleeding disorders, like hemophilia. In order to do this, we are calling attention to a new documentary film that exemplifies the extraordinary feats that can be tackled with ever improving therapies, called Bombardier Blood.
BOMBARDIER BLOOD- Bombardier Blood follows mountaineer Chris Bombardier on a historic mission to become the first person with hemophilia to climb the Seven Summits, the highest mountain on each continent, including the world’s tallest peak, Mount Everest. The intimate, unflinching film also chronicles Chris’s quest to bring aid and fundraise for people with hemophilia where access to life-saving treatment is scarce, and the disease is often deadly. This film is produced by Alex Borstein, the two-time Emmy-Award winning actress best known for her work on “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “Family Guy”. She has joined the producing team to raise funds for the charity Save One Life.
