Living With Sickle Cell Disease feat Isowa Odiase - Episode 12
September is Sickle Cell Awareness Month and in this episode we speak to Isowa, a sickle cell warrior and founder of IsoWarrior. Isowarrior is a foundation that helps to raise funds through various programs and initiatives, with the aim of creating awareness for and supporting patients who suffer from sickle cell disease.
Isowa shares her life story and the plans she has for her foundation. Sickle cell disease is a group of inherited red blood cell disorders. There is currently no known cure, other than bone marrow and blood transplants, however there are multiple ways of managing the symptoms. In some parts of Africa, the prevalence of SCD ranges from 20% to as high as 45%!
