Sickle cell lives matter – Sickle cell disease awareness art


“This art is not about violence or hate it is about my life as an artist living with sickle cell disease. It is very hard to convey how much sickle cell pain hurts without images like these. As an artist I have made it my mission in life to put sickle cell awareness in everything that I do so even when I want to create shirt designs I cannot forget to tell people about this pain. Sickle cell can cause extreme pain crisis and other serious live shattering issues, such as infections, stroke, acute chest syndrome and can lead to a life long disabilities. As an artist I have lost the vision in my right eye due to sickle cell and I want to encourage other with my art hoping to inspire empathy and compassion. Donate blood at your local Red Cross or register as a bone marrow donor.” Hertz Nazaire – a painter and sickle cell warrior.
