Men! Stop running away!

Rita Fyneface

When Rita's baby daughter, Caroline, was born with Sickle Cell disease, her husband stepped out for a breath of fresh air.. And never came back. The disease is considered by some to be a curse and it's true that Rita's life has not been easy, caring for Caroline as well as her other children. But she has watched Caroline overcome the pain and grow into a bright, vibrant, confident young woman - someone of whom her father could be very proud.
