Real Stories From People Living With Sickle Cell Disease
Mikeia Green was born with Sickle Cell Disease. She shares her experience of how she managed sickle cell disease (SCD) in college. Ms. Green’s mother always took care of her but Mikeia left her home in Arizona to attend college in California. This brought a big change in her life when she started dealing with day to day struggles.
While in college, Mikeia never let her SCD condition limit what she could accomplish. She was involved in a variety of service and cultural organizations, tutored students, held a work-study job, and made time for the gym to stay healthy.
Mikeia reached out to the Sickle Cell Disease Foundation in California (SCDFC) for support and resources to help her find a doctor. She also connected with a social worker from the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles to help her transition from her previous pediatric care to an adult care specialist.
