Barry Haarde, First Person with Hemophilia and HIV to Cycle Across the U.S., Raises Funds for Save One Life
Date:5/13/2013

Georgetown, MA (PRWEB) May 13, 2013

Cyclist Barry Haarde commenced his second cross-country bike tour, “Wheels for the World 2013: Fast and Furious,” in Costa Mesa, California on April 20 to raise funds for Save One Life.

Save One Life supports over 1,000 impoverished children and adults with hemophilia in 11 developing countries through direct sponsorship. Hemophilia is a rare genetic disorder that prevents blood from forming an effective clot. Estimated to occur in one out of every 5,000 male births, untreated hemophilia can cause prolonged internal bleeding, painful joint deformities, crippling and death.

Last summer, Barry became the first person with hemophilia and HIV to cycle across the United States. Starting in Ashland, Oregon, Barry cycled 3,667 miles through eleven states and Canada to arrive in Portsmouth, New Hampshire 50 days later. He dedicated each day of his ride to a person with hemophilia who has lost his life to hepatitis or AIDS and posted their photos and names on Facebook. This included Ryan White, the teenager who became the face of HIV/AIDS in the late 1980s when he was expelled from his school due to his infection. In addition, Barry helped to raise $30,000 for Save One Life.

For many years Barry hid his own HIV-positive status. But after surviving a grueling multi-year treatment to cure his hepatitis in his early forties, Barry decided to make his disorder public. Since then Barry has been symbol of courage, determination and endurance for people with hemophilia around the world.

Barry is an outstanding example of his favorite motto, attributed to musician Bob Marley, “You don't know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.”

“Having survived over thirty years with HIV, and also having recently cured hepatitis C—from which I’d developed liver cirrhosis—I have a very strong sense of gratitude and appreciation,” says Barry. “Not only
