The Warrior Series

After a recent stint in the hospital, I began researching documentaries and photo series about sickle cell. Disappointed by what I found – sad stories, stories that narrow in on the pain and, stories that tell how there is no cure; I decided it was time for a different narrative. One of strength, hope and joy.  People living with sickle cell often call one another warriors. So I contacted my closest warrior friends and began discussing what it means to be a Sickle Cell Warrior.

Being born with Sickle Cell Anemia has its ups and downs. This disease has humbled me, and through that humility I’ve developed a better spiritual relationship with GOD. My image represents a fighter who wins.
