My name is José Antonio, I was born in the city of Alicante (Spain). At 7 months of age, my family moved to Madrid due to my illness, haemophilia, so that I could be closer to my hospital, where they have been treating my illness since.

When I was little, I was a very happy child, I played and ran like the other children. It was perhaps at my own risk, but what I learned in my childhood undoubtedly helped me succeed in life.

My life motto that has always helped me achieve impossible things has been “my fear is my partner and my bravery is my power”.

Nowadays, I lead a complicated life, but based on my attitude and perseverance, I have achieved my dream, to write a book about my life.

My great challenge is to reach the highest point of the Iberian Peninsula (3,478 meters or 11,410 ft.) and, while looking at the sky, offer my father a copy of my book, since he protects me from up there.
