Youth Camp

My name is Ethan and I am 19 years old. I was born with severe Haemophilia a, but I haven’t let that stop me in life. In my spare time I love to go out road cycling and keeping fit, in the past I have competed at national levels through hard work and determination.


Archie’s a great role model for others as he’s never let haemophilia stop him. People are always amazed to find out about his haemophilia because he’s so sporty and active.


I have learnt that you can’t really let a bleeding disorder stop you from doing what you want to do, and if not, there is always a way around things. I have recently been nominated as the Youth Ambassador for the Yorkshire Bleeding Disorders Group and hope to connect with other young people through that.
