Today’s Faces of Sickle Cell Disease: Tesha Samuels
Tesha Samuels was diagnosed with SCD at the age of 3 years. She almost lost her life several times over the years, and she recently suffered a miscarriage. But she is well aware that others are worse off than her. She has felt well enough to work consistently since she was 17, and she has been with the D.C. Department of Corrections for 10 years.
Unimaginable hurdle: Every day, Samuels wakes up and goes to bed with an overwhelming amount of pain. It is always at the forefront of her mind, and she doesn’t remember one day without pain for more than 20 years. “But I try to not let it get me down. I try to do as much living as I can.”
