Living With Sickle Cell Disease: One Person’s Story of Pain and Prejudice and Their Hopes for a Stem Cell Therapy
My name is Marissa Cors, I have sickle cell disease. I was diagnosed with sickle cell disease at six months of age. I am now 40. Sickle cell has been a part of my life every day of my life.
The treatments you are supporting and funding here at CIRM are very important. They offer a potential cure to a disease that desperately needs one. I want to tell you just how urgently people with sickle cell need a cure.
I have been hospitalized so many times that my medical record is now more than 8 gigabytes. I have almost 900 pages in my medical record from my personal doctor alone.
I live with pain every day of my life but because you can’t see pain most people have no idea how bad it can be.
