Ask Allison: Sickle Cell Awareness Month

Posted: Updated:

On this edition of Ask Allison, Allison takes a look at a really touching email about a young lady who is living with the pain and multiple treatments that come with Sickle Cell disease.

But she is one of the lucky ones - she is scheduled to get a bone marrow transplant in January!

With all that said, we thought it would be perfect timing to talk about Sickle Cell during the month of September, Sickle Cell Awareness Month.

Kaitlyn Adams along with her mom Tijuana Adams and Dr. Emily Myer from Children's National Medical Center, joined us with more.
