I recently got this in my Myspace box and I’m passing it on to all the Sickle Cell Warriors out there.
We are asking everyone to help raise public awareness of this deadly genetic disorder. PLEASE put SICKLE CELL, You Have No Idea! in your top friends.
While sickle cell is often thought of as a “black” disease, it is not exclusively so. Yes, it is concentrated in Americans of African origin. But it also occurs in many other groups of people including those whose ancestors were Greeks, Italians, Arabs, Latin Americans, Native Americans, etc. And not just in the U.S. Whether you are affected or not please help us raise awareness. This is a global disease!!!
Thanks, in advance
There are a few things in this paragraph that I could pick apart in frustration and outrage but I’ll let it slide today because I’ve just had 9 delicious orgasms and feel fuckin’ fantastic.
So yeah, Sickle Cell Awareness Month. Spread the word.
