Sometime last year, I met a phenomenal woman – Mrs Ifeoma Ifejika, a sickle cell survivor – I am yet to meet a more jovial, sweet person. She shared her story with me, her smile growing bigger as she told her tale, my blood growing cold.
Three Heart Attacks…
Endless Hospital Visits…
An addiction to her medication…
This Amazon has fought hard and she bears her scars with a boldness and enthusiasm that is unparalleled.
This poem is dedicated to Mrs Ifeoma Ifejika and Sickle Cell survivors all over the world.
Keep fighting! Keep Breathing!
