VWD is the most commonly inherited bleeding disorder. I wrote this book together with Reneé Paper, a woman with VWD, emergency room nurse, and powerful advocate. Together we decided on the topics, which include learning to cope with VWD, inheritance, the medical system, treatment, women’s issues, and health insurance. The third edition includes important medical and scientific updates about VWD. This 175-page book offers parents, patients, and healthcare professionals a complete resource guide featuring real-life stories.
