Jess Page

Youth Ambassador

Hi, my name’s Jess and I’m a carrier of haemophilia A and my dad has severe haemophilia A.

Growing up I struggled with bad bruises and heavy bleeding but was always told that there was nothing wrong with me, as girls couldn’t have haemophilia! It wasn’t until I was 18 that I was finally tested and it confirmed that my factor levels were low enough to be diagnosed with mild haemophilia.

I’m a primary school teacher and play rugby for my local team. I also enjoy keeping active.

I enjoy being a youth ambassador because I support others in the community and raise awareness of bleeding disorders in women.
