Howard University Pediatrics is a blessing to family with sickle cell. I am a single mother of two boys
Micah 12 and Mason 8 both with sickle cell. They go to Howard for treatment and they see Dr. Rana, who is Who is there hematologist as well as their pediatrician. At Howard we are a tight-knit family which would not work if we were not a unit. I would like nothing more than to give back to the family that has been a comfort as well as a support system when my family needed them. I want other families who are fighting Sickle cell you also have the help we have been blessed with. So I am asking you to please help bring awareness about this deadly blood disorder. Every little bit counts. Thank you in advance for being a blessing to someone else.
