My bestfriend was a sickle cell warrior for 18 years. He lost his battle July 27, 2009 a week before I made one of the biggest moves of my life…..going to college. He was supposed to “escort” me lol….Still hasn’t been the same without but I can say after 4 years I’ve never been more accepting of his death until today which marks what would have been his 23rd birthday!

I put up a “good fight” towards Sickle Cell… 26 years old, and I’m down to 2 hospitalizations a year!! I’m from Georgia, but I reside in Kentucky! My only real problem with Sickle Cell is that I can’t seem to have a successful pregnancy… Yeah, the pain crisis get me down, but I don’t stay there… It’s all in the fight!!
I’m 28 y.o. and I just moved from Hou to Cali in July. I literally live right across from the ocean now so my body went through hell adjusting to the climate change. I was in an ER almost every other day for 3 weeks straight. Then a hemot doctor here give me a massive transfusion that changed everything! I’ve bn getting regular transfusions for 10 years now but usually they were just a couple bags of blood as opposed to the SIX bags I received with this last one. I haven’t bn sick once since that transfusion, not too mention my energy levels are great and the cold air doesn’t even bother me now! The Dr said his plan was to give me enough blood that my body wouldn’t even need to produce red blood cells for awhile, and I think it actually worked! I feel GREAT!!!
Sickle Cell Warrior 31 years Strong and Full of life!!!
