The Sickle Cell Anemia Update

Series: Disease Update

By Alvin Silverstein, Virginia Silverstein and Laura Silverstein Nunn

Tionne Watkins, better known as T-Boz from the popular music group TLC, has overcome adversity and pain. Having been diagnosed with sickle cell anemia when she was just eight years old, she has since excelled in her music career and as a mother. Sickle cell anemia is sometimes debilitating; painful crises of intense pain can disrupt the lives of the millions of people who have this disease. In this latest book in the Disease Update series, the authors discuss the history, causes, diagnosis, and treatment of the disease. Real stories from patients living with the disease give readers a clear picture of what it is like to live with sickle cell anemia.
