At Astria, the experiences of patients guide all that we do. Their stories inspire us, their successes energize us, and their challenges give us purpose.
We were thrilled to have the opportunity to get to know Jasmine, a 21 year-old college student living with type I HAE. Jasmine is a horseback rider, aspiring veterinarian, and HAE advocate.
“This is not something I would have paid attention to in the past, but as the years went by, I couldn’t ignore it.”
Meet Kim, executive recruiter living with type II HAE. Kim remembers her first attack at 8 years old, but it took her 25 years to get a formal diagnosis. Ever since, she’s been motivated to support the HAE community as an advocate and a participant in clinical trials.
“Getting on a preventative treatment for HAE was life changing for me. Prior to that I was scared to go anywhere that was too far away from a hospital.”
