What I see.

Joshua Spencer-Johnson

11 year old Joshua has learned a lot about Sickle Cell Anaemia: his brother Tayo, who has the disease, has to take medication, drink lots of water and get up in the night to use the toilet, which disturbs Joshua's sleep and can make it hard for him to concentrate at school - it's also hard to concentrate when Tayo is having a crisis or in hospital. Although he doesn't always know what to do, he can help by comforting Tayo when he's in pain and by staying positive about doing things together as a family.
This Patient Voices digital story was created in a workshop funded by Imperial College Healthcare Charity and North West London CLAHRC.
