Sickle Cell Disease: An Introduction

Just two short days ago, it was World Sickle Cell Awareness Day, and with great joy, I saw a lot of posts and videos on social media, trying to educate the world about what Sickle Cell Disease is and the effects this deadly disease has on sufferers of this disease. As well as educating the world about SCD, there was an array of people trying to simultaneously trying to spread awareness to all through a variety of posts, quizzes and online presentations.

So, in its honour, I release the first video of many, which focuses on Sickle Cell Disease.

  2. Hey there,

    It’s good to see such an amazing video about Sickle Cell Disease. It seems like I need to learn a lot about it.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
    Enjoy your day!



  3. Sassy, Sassy Sassy…I had the pleasure of meeting you a couple of weeks ago in the hospital, as we were treated side-by-side, with the same condition. I must say the video made me want to cry, as it brought a lot of things inside me to the surface. I try to look at the ‘bright side of life’, as much as possible, but there are times we are made to ‘wake up and smell the coffee!’ This is especially when it’s perculating right beside you! You have said it exactly as it is and I must applaud you for it. Continue, my dear friend x

    1. Marcia,

      Your comment and response touches my heart because as a writer, you hope that you reach people to help them feel less alone and more supported (and in part to help yourself feel a bit better), but sometimes it can get overwhelming when you hear that your words has actually resonated with someone.

      Thank you for reading and thank you for supporting me. It’s truly a blessing that we met.
