A cool bracelet for people with Von Willebrands disease; I have Von Willebrands; I bleed therefore I am. What is von Willebrand Disease? Von Willebrand Disease is a bleeding disorder caused by a defect or deficiency of a blood clotting protein, called von Willebrand Factor. The disease is estimated to occur in 1% to 2% of the population. Von Willebrand Factor is a protein critical to the initial stages of blood clotting.
Von Willebrand Disease Type 1 Braxton has been officially diagnosed today, December 27, 2013 with Von Willebrand disease Type I (This is the most common and mildest form of Von Willebrand disease. Levels of Von Willebrand factor are lower than normal, and levels of factor VIII may also be reduced). Sounds horrible doesn't it? To put it simply Braxton's blood is not sticky enough to clot.
