Story

Story

Born in Mexico with a rare and debilitating bleeding disorder, Guadalupe nearly died at twelve because of limited access to medicines.  One night, his appendix burst, and he began bleeding internally, requiring emergency surgery. In search of better medication to stop the bleeding, Guadalupe was rushed to a hospital eight hours away. He bled so severely during the surgery that his heart stopped beating, and the doctors declared him clinically dead. But against all odds, Guadalupe survived. 

After his recovery, his family and he migrated to the U.S., searching for better healthcare for him. The transition was difficult: his parents arrived in California with little money or education, and Guadalupe spoke no English. Navigating the health care system as an immigrant and not knowing the language was a challenge. Accessing treatment and services for his disease was practically impossible at first. The nearest specialist was one hr and a half away. Thankfully, he gained access to care and treatment with help from the Hemophilia Association chapter in the area. Driven by his experiences, Guadalupe made it his mission to fight for justice and equity in the healthcare system.
