Living and Coping with Sickle Cell


Cedono says, “I thoroughly enjoyed reading all the comments in here, and I’ve felt the same way at one point or the other. Every day that I open my eyes, I’m thankful for life, especially if I’ve awoken with no pain and the ability to press on with my day. It may be hard, it may be a struggle, but I’m lucky to be alive. We all are. We are here for a purpose and our stories show the strength of the human spirit. We’ll keep on going, no matter what life throws at us: “Pursue your dreams, because God doesn’t give his weakest soldiers his hardest work; he gives his work to the strongest ones” Tardieu
