Hi, my name is Bel and I am a parent to two children, 16 and 13 years old, living with Sickle Cell Anaemia.
I have joined Sickle cell and Young Stroke Survivors to help them with supporting Parents/Carers (like myself), community work and promoting Sickle cell in schools.
As a Health professional I have been helping a lot of families with Care plans in schools.
I am available for you, if you want to talk, we also have a good network of fellow parents that can help you to come to terms with early diagnosis.
We understand how daunting hospital admissions are and the disruption it causes for the whole family.
Please feel free to contact me so that we can talk at Belkisu@scyss.org or fill in the form on our contact page.
