This month on The BloodStream Podcast, we interview actress Alex Borstein who’s best known as the voice of Lois on “Family Guy.” Alex talks about her life as an entertainer, a symptomatic carrier and a hemo mom.  In our Like Segment, Natalie introduces us to the Feldenkrais Method and how it’s being used to manage chronic pain. In our Share Segment, New York City Hemophilia Chapter member Nicole Angeles shares her story of living with von Willebrand Disease, and some of the very challenging decisions it’s forced her to make. Patrick highlights Jonathan Cohn’s excellent HuffPost piece about the ousted Iowa teen with hemophilia whose insurance expense Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield explicitly cited to justify pulling out of the Iowa health care markets.
