    I had found this website about three months ago and I wanted to be connected with it. But what I didn’t know was that I was already connected. What made me see that was you(Sickle Cell Warrior) when you posted my video up on your page. Thanks a lot. It has made 200 views and counting. I have also made more videos about being a Sickle Cell Warrior and I will be making more!
