On Sunday, June 19, 2016, the world celebrated Father’s Day. It’s one of those days that can often become either really hyped or completely overlooked, depending on who you talk to. In fact, last year it seemed as though there was a total hijacking of the holiday as many chose to celebrate single mothers instead of giving honor to fathers. However, something else happened on June 19th. It was World Sickle Cell Day. It is the single day set aside to bring attention and awareness, and advocate for the needs of those who live with Sickle Cell Anemia.
As someone who has lived with Sickle Cell, I was recently inspired to write about my life, trials, and triumphs with it. However, knowing that there are many of you who read my blogs who may not know about Sickle Cell or would just like to know more about me, I’d like to know from you exactly what you’d like to know about it and me. What questions do you have? Would you like to know how I’ve navigated relationships? Would you be interested in the kind of legacy I’m creating for my family? Would it interest you how my faith has guided me through the ups and downs of it all? Let me know, so that I can best present what I pray will be the best I could share with you and the world.
