Today’s Faces of Sickle Cell Disease: Rodrick Murray
Rodrick Murray was 3 months old when he was diagnosed with SCD. This condition became the backdrop of his life, often hindering it. Born in Chicago, he met his second wife, who is from Maryland, in 2002, and in 2005 he moved to the state, home of NIH. Murray went to a sickle cell convention in Washington, D.C., and ran into many people involved with the research. After that, he participated in several clinical trials. In June 2015, he went through the gene therapy protocol that changed his life. “I’m feeling good. My numbers [hemoglobin, blood iron] are good!” Murray has a son, 21, and a daughter, 19. Both have the sickle cell trait.
