My joy, my strength

Emily Etete

Emily's life fell apart when she learned that one of her tiny twin daughters had Sickle Cell Anaemia. Her fears of how she would manage to care for her were compounded by fear of judgement from others in her community and despair at the lack of understanding and support from health professionals. Now, having found support and fought for improvements in the care of her daughter, Emily is able to stand back and see her daughter as a strong, responsible, courageous young woman.
This Patient Voices digital story was created in a workshop funded by Imperial College Healthcare Charity and North West London CLAHRC.
