37-year-old Accountant
Living with Gaucher
Father of Amy, newly diagnosed
Trusts his treatment for himself, and his daughter
Treatment felt like a miracle
Joseph is a 37 year old accountant, and a father to Amy, who was recently diagnosed with Gaucher. When I was first diagnosed, my doctors told me there was no treatment for Gaucher disease—all they could do was give me painkillers and treat complications as they came up. My quality of life was definitely impacted. So when enzyme replacement therapy was introduced, it was a significant improvement.

"I feel lucky that Gaucher disease hasn’t kept me from living the life I want to live. I’ve started my own business, traveled the world, got married and started a family."
