My only brother had sickle cell disease. He lived for 45 years. My cousin, whom we call Uncle, has lost his sight to glaucoma. I am sure there are thousands more persons who can identify with me because they either have a relative or friend or they, themselves have suffered or are suffering from these diseases.
There is the need for more awareness of these diseases. I believe this is a cause deserving our support. I will certainly appreciate any suggestion.
