Here to Stay — Living With Sickle Cell Disease


My name is Noah Alexander Williams and I am living with sickle cell anemia disease. Sickle cell isn’t really a widely talked-about disease but it’s so real and epic that it should be.

Sickle cell anemia disease is a grasping chronic sickness that doesn’t let go. Unfortunately I have it and have had it since I was born. I don’t know life without sickle cell disease and therefore I don’t know life without pain — the daily aches, the crucial crises that come out of nowhere. Sickle cell is never predictable. Of course this disease has impacted my life beyond words. I’ve learned to cope with it.
