True Sickle Cell Warrior - Adeja Johnson
In tribute to Adeja Johnson during Sickle Cell Awareness Month 2011.
A warrior is a person engaged or experienced in warfare or figuratively a person who shows or has shown great vigor, courage, or aggressiveness.
Adeja Johnson is one such person. She was a true sickle cell warrior.
Adeja fought sickle cell disease with the newly discovered procedure, Stem Cell Transplant. There are many complications of this treatment and the long-term effects are not fully known. Even with this procedure, there is still no "reliable" cure.
But Adeja and her family stood out in front of this battle with courage AND aggressiveness. As only a warrior would do, Adeja fought well and we are all better off because she did.
God bless you Adeja, I'll be looking for you in heaven.
