The most painful thing I have heard in a long while is a 6 year old Sickle Cell Anaemic patient asking the consultant and his mum:

""Pls Mum if I die today will I stop having this pains?""🥺🥺🥺

The whole ward was mute for several minutes. There was this chill down my spine
When he was asked to describe the pain he was feeling he said:

"I Feel like several hammers are used to hit me directly on all my bones"

All person with AS should be aware that the probability of having a sickler is 25% per delivery but you may be unfortunate to have all SS
F*ck love, one of the first questions to ask while dating should be "what's ur genotype"

Religious leaders should incorporate genotype as one of the criteria for marriage just like they do with HIV and Hepatitis

We can eradicate Sickle cell disease if we ban AS Vs AS marriage
It makes no sense to be in this technological Era yet have children suffering from Sickle cell crisis daily when this can be prevented.

Ban AS Vs AS marriage and in few years to come, the pool of AA would be surplus and would surpass AS, with time we won't be having AS or SS
We should educate those around us and save these innocent babies from such torment
