Put Your Oxygen Mask on First: Self-care and Bleeding Disorders
After years of ignoring her own symptoms so she could focus on her son, Mily struggled when confronted with her own diagnosis of hemophilia. She got tired of feeling the need to hide it from others. Today, she encourages other women to ask themselves: “What do I need to do to take care of myself as well as my family?” Mily shares how you can better help others when you are stronger yourself.

SPEAKERS (Presentadores)

Denise Atkinson
Manager, Coagulation Products – CSL Behring

Milybet Montijo-Cepeda
Common Factors Speaker – CSL Behring
Mily knew about hemophilia from a young age because her father had severe hemophilia. Later, when her son was diagnosed, she began to question her own symptoms and was diagnosed with hemophilia as well. These days, Mily is devoted to advocating for her family, as well as others who face similar challenges.
