Millie Gonzalez (1953-2001) A devoted wife and mother as well as a pioneer dedicated to advocacy, Millie promoted awareness of the unique struggles faced by women with a bleeding disorder and those caring for an individual affected by a bleeding disorder. She was married to Papo Gonzalez, a person with hemophilia and well-known advocate in his own right, who passed prior to Millie. She was a tireless advocate not only for women but also for people of Hispanic heritage affected with bleeding disorders.
