Video: Bombardier Blood Shows the Plight of the Mountaineer with Hemophilia

The video above is a trailer for a much longer documentary due out soon. Entitled Bombardier Blood, the film introduces us to mountaineer Chris Bombardier, who suffers from hemophilia. This condition can be dangerous and life threatening under the best of circumstances, but in the high mountains it can be especially dangerous. That hasn’t stopped Chris from pursuing his dream of climbing the Seven Summits. When the film begins, he has just two of those peaks left and he is preparing for Everest. His goal it so not just summit the mountain, but raise awareness of hemophilia along the way. From the brief look that we get in this clip, it looks to be a gripping and inspiring tale.
