It isn't full-blown hemophilia, but a variety in which the clotting factor is diminished rather than absent. But DAMN IT! Science wins again. While prayer has done... Oh, nothing.

I think because Hemophilia can be mild, moderate, or severe, depending on how much clotting factor is in the blood this is a cure for some. Aren't there other considered cures and treatments that are not 100% effective for all patients? They are cures for those it helps and this is no different. Imo.

When's the last time you ate bread or pasta?

I still sometimes eat bread as open-faced sandwiches, and I rarely eat pasta anymore.
