At the age of 4 years old, Mariah had her spleen removed due to sickle cell complications. Mariah will have to take penicillin for the rest of her life. Mariah has spent many days and nights in the emergency room, the hospital and blood transfusions to help her get better. It hasn’t been easy for us financially, even with medical insurance. Our faith in God, family, friends, and generous people like you has kept our family together during these rough times.
My Sickle Cell Story website brings a message of Hope, Love & Faith in God. It is our desire that as many families that are affected by this disease would share their experiences and stories to help bring awareness. To overcome and heal from this sickness everyone’s story must be told and heard. Please share your story, and together we will all overcome!
We have published our first book which tells my story. Please go here to own your copy! www.amazon.com
All proceeds from the book help to fund Mariah’s medical bills. You can also donate here:
