Raising A Child With Chronic Illness: Tommy & Austine Berry’s Story

The Berrys

Our newest story features 29-year-old Austine Berry and 32-year-old Tommy Berry. Their son, Grayson, was diagnosed as a baby with hemophilia, a medical condition which causes the sufferer to blood severely even with a slight injury.

Despite the trials they face with his condition, they choose to focus on the positive experiences of having a child with hemophilia and their hopes for his future. Austine and Tommy also offer advice for parents and health care providers dealing with hemophilia. We hope you find value in their story and inspiration in their approach to raising children with chronic conditions.
