Meet Tim Grams

During Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month, we recognize an accomplished athlete and outdoorsman who lives an active life despite having hemophilia.

Story

 

Tim Grams spends his life on the go. The husband and father from Colorado takes advantage of his spectacular surroundings by hiking, biking and skiing. He’s no slouch in the water as well, having set several records as an NCAA Division I swimmer.

 It’s an impressively active life for anyone, but especially for Tim, who was born with the rare disease and bleeding disorder hemophilia A. For some of Tim’s insights on living with hemophilia, see his story in the video above or check out some of our other stories featuring him below.
