Real Stories From People Living With Sickle Cell Disease: Mimi
“When I’m in that moment of pain in the emergency room, I can’t even think for myself. The pain is debilitating and they’re asking me questions like, ‘Are you sure you have sickle cell? We need to look into this,’” says Mimi, a 37-year-old lawyer and mom of four.
Mimi’s medical history is similar to that of many individuals with sickle cell disease (SCD): she has experienced severe pain since a young age, frequently sought care in the emergency department (ED), and has received numerous blood transfusions (when healthy blood is given to a patient through one of their blood vessels). But Mimi’s genetic (inherited) blood disorder comes as a surprise to many healthcare providers when they first meet her because of one detail: she’s not African American.
