Duan Bingqiang, 48, is a severe hemophiliac; because of a deficiency of one of the clotting factors in his body, his blood doesn't clot properly. Any slight injury, even sneeze, will cause endless bleeding. "It is a miracle that I am still alive." He said.

He has two treasures: his son and his company.

His son is Kang Kang, 19. Kang means "healthy" in Chinese. Duan hopes his son can grow up healthily and happily. On the Father’s Day, when Kang Kang planned to buy a gift for Duan, Duan said: "I don't need gift; you are my best gift." Although Duan cannot teach Kang Kang swimming, playing football as father, Kang Kang has learnt how to face difficulty and how to be strong in life.

Another treasure is his non-profit association - the home of hemophiliacs; there are five volunteers in the association who help people suffering hemophilia.
