It is popular belief that people living with sickle cell are limited and cannot attain much. This is a myth but unfortunately, many hold on to this ideology, allowing it to ruin their chances of living up to their dreams and aspirations. The stigmatization attached to it has equally not been helpful. It is for this reason that CrimsonBow Sickle Cell Initiative started this campaign to tell the stories of some people who are succeeding amidst the crisis.
These people are thriving in their respective professions- impacting their world without relegating themselves to the back burner. They have defied all odds, rising above sickle cell and their story should give hope to others.
CrimsonBow Sickle Cell Initiative offers a support system to individuals with sickle cell, through projects such as “Keep a warrior warm” and many others. For more information, please visit http://www.crimsonbowng.wordpress.com/.
