I've been a blood donor for many years until one day I had gone to my congregation and met a single mother who shared her story with me about her son who has Sickle Cell Anemia. The mother and I had talked for quite some time and her heartbreaking struggles of raising her son in hospitals.

This was around 2016 when I had made a very important decision to start donating to Sickle Cell Anemia patients.

I've been a Sickle Cell Hero ever since then and I'm very proud to be a donor of many young and old people because in my eyes, we are all family and need the support of each other to continue living and to be a part of this I am striving to save lives every day.
